I feel like I'm back in school, experiencing the complicated learning curve of a new programming language. Knowing C/C++ is beneficial, but only to a point, than it gets in the way of the new language constructs and design.
It feels like I had to throw away everything I knew about programming, and make my mind a blank slate to learn Objective-C. Otherwise I would get distracted with wrong assumptions and fail to correctly understand the new code.
Stubborn persistence and patience is required here. And of course, more time.
The single most important element, and in today’s modern world, also the most scarce.
