Swift knowledge for objective c app
I have recently taken the swift courses and was wondering If I would be able to continue iOS development through viewing the objective c app tracks. I do not want to confuse myself with another language. As a result, I was curious if they are close enough to follow. Also, is there a way to get the swift code for the objective c app tracks. For example the blog or self distructing messaging app.
Depending on how long you have been programming would depend on what I would say. If you are new to programming in general then I would not as ObjC is as some people would say more old school (being based off SmallTalk!). If you have worked in any smalltalk influenced languages such as PHP or Apple Script or even in C/C++ then it would feel a bit easier - although C++ was based of simula!
Personally I still dabble in ObjC although I find swift far more efficient, however basic ObjC knowledge can be useful when implementing functionality from a framework or library based in ObjC.
