Cocoa is Mac OS X's built-in object-oriented application framework. Written in Objective-C, it is perhaps the most mature and advanced desktop application framework in existence. You can think of it as OpenStep: The Next Generation. Cocoa isn't magic and Objective-C isn't a super-language. Far from it. Together, we'll step through an introduction of Objective-C, the language, highlighting its pros and cons. For the second part, we'll explore the Cocoa itself, both from the framework level and the toolkit level (Xcode and Interface Builder).
