iOS Objective-C App Development Training at Amsys
Swift is the new kid on the block when it comes to App development. But, it’s nowhere near as established as Objective-C which accounts for its enduring popularity. Objective-C is generally acknowledged to be a little harder to learn than Swift, but because it’s so established, many candidates elect to study Objective-C first, then learn Swift. We’ve designed a range of courses that can take a student from total novice to expert.

Objective-C vs. Swift. Which should you learn?
Swift was released by Apple on XCode 6 Beta in June 2014 as a replacement to the standard app programming language at the time Objective-C, which had been around for 20 years. Objective-C, which is based on the C language, is generally acknowledged to be a ‘hard’ programming language with tricky syntax, complicated grammar, lots of classes and manipulations to make it object-oriented, which means plenty of scope for coding errors and lengthy debugging. Swift is designed from the ground up to be object-oriented so it’s a lot easier to create commands, references and classes with objects (find out more here).
Objective-C is a still a little more established because it’s got such a long history, but we’re seeing more and more momentum towards Swift. In an ideal world, we’d recommend you learn Objective-C first, then learn Swift. That way you can work with legacy code and libraries and use the fast, modern and safe Swift language too. But, if you already know that you want to code Swift, then there’s no need to start with Objective-C.
