Budding iOS/Mac developer, trying to learn as much as I can from wherever I can, and develop some best practices along the way.

comment Is there any advantage to learning C first?
@qegal Ah, so you did. Very insightful answers there, and I could've (should've?) looked there before posting here. But SO has always struck me as more of the actual code solution side of the house. Either way, thank you for the heads up!

comment Is there any advantage to learning C first?
I think I've got a fairly good grasp on the OO part of Objective-C, there's just some... finer nuances?... of the language that elude me. Been skimming over "The C Programming Language", and even from the beginning, it seems to be filling in some of the gaps.

comment Is there any advantage to learning C first?
There's no specific need for C per se, but it just seems like the platforms that I want to develop for have C at their core (e.g., C# and Objective-C for Windows and Mac, respectively). So I'm just trying to ensure that I've got the foundation required to have a better understanding of those particular languages.

comment Is there any advantage to learning C first?
True, and that's another opinion that I've read. That is, procedural vs. object-oriented programming types, which is what caused me to overlook reading into the C language in the first place. But it just seems that more and more often, the different lessons I find end up diving back into C functions.

I'm not actually asking which language should I learn next. I'm trying to figure out if it would be beneficial to learn C for the basic foundation of programming in the C language sub/supersets, or if it's satisfactory enough to learn each language on its own.

comment Is there any advantage to learning C first?
Though I can't put my finger on any specific part that I think I'm lacking, it normally ends up being in an exercise that I'll be following. For example, I'll be led through a method and how to go about performing a task, and then told that they're gonna have to use a C-level function to get it done, and I'll have no idea why it's being done, or how they came to that conclusion.

It doesn't look like that's necessarily true, if you use ad hoc deployment: readwriteweb.com/mobile/2010/12/…
