A few times in the past I've hit a major wall and simply couldn't progress with a certain aspect of an app as Im a beginner and still learning the ropes (Objective-C specifically).

I was curious if anyone knows of any services which support programmers in real time, paid or free and will over video, audio or text chat sit and work a problem out till its fixed and look through your code?

I understand Stackoverflow does a super job at this! However Im in need of something a little more tailored where someone can spend a little time to sit and look and what Im dealing with and delve into my a code if need be.

I can't quite imagine doing this for free (much anyway). Some consultants do it for fees semi-regularly (I've done a couple gigs that were roughly on that order, though with C++ rather than Objective C). – Jerry Coffin Mar 27 '12 at 20:47
As with anything else, you need to find a tutor or consultant in your area that can help you one-on-one. – Bernard Mar 27 '12 at 21:01

Could be enough to work in a small group of two or three people on a similar level. Often it's not necessary to have that much extra experience, but just to have different approaches towards a problem and ping-pong ideas.

Or have a look at irc channels like ##objc and #macdev on I don't know how active they are, but chances are good you find somebody to chat about whatever questions you have.

For some reason can't join them as I get an error saying I need to be identified. Thanks for pointing me in that direction though. – Josh Kahane Mar 28 '12 at 20:25
