Absolutely impossible to grasp - from C basics to this. Surely it gets better?

If you are talking about the IOS classes I have started with Object Oriented Swift. Seems like the beginning to me. It is hard for me to grasp as well. I am giving it all I have and still struggling although it's getting better and I know a lot more then when I started. I think it just takes time because I tried Lynda.com and others before but like here best. I use the teachers notes below the videos which have links to reference material mostly on Apple.Developer. One clue this is not easy for most is all the reference material and tutorial sites out there. Apple.Developer is a huge reference site and that is a clue as well. There are so many which means there is a need for them and we are not the only ones. Good luck and keep going I am going to keep at it till I get it. I don't care how long it takes!!!!!!

Thanks John. Im sure it will get better. I mean I loved the html, css, js, and sass courses. They were so easy to relate to and dissolve. The leaps in these is pretty intense with little explanation or expansion on the points but I think it just takes some saturation. Good luck!

I agree C was well taught he literally jumps into this

The material is a little difficult to understand, but if you do understand object-oriented from another language, you start picking up tidbits here and there. Hang in there, this stuff will get easier as you continue to practice.

Yes Laurie I think HTML and the like is much easier to grasp which is why people do not consider it programming. Programming is hard and takes awhile!
