iPhone SDK Essential Training: Calling methods in Objective-C

By Simon Allardice

iPhone SDK Essential Training presents the tools and skills needed to create applications for this mobile platform. Developer Simon Allardice breaks down the process of becoming an iPhone developer, from getting started with the tools and the language to building user interfaces and working with the unique features of the iPhone. With multiple hands-on exercises and demonstration projects, Simon explores the core development tools for iPhone (Xcode, Interface Builder, and Instruments), the language (Objective-C), and the framework (Cocoa Touch).

In this clip, host Simon Allardice discusses calling methods in Objective-C. He says that this is one of the areas that a lot of people find a little unusual, because if you come from a regular C based language background, you are used to a different type of calling method. In Objective C, things are a bit different and Allardice explains the differences.
