Objective C syntax

I spent this weekend teaching an Introduction to Cocoa-Touch course in Madrid. As usual, you always end up learning something new from your students, but yesterday was special.

Baffled by Objective C‘s verbosity, specially the splitViewController:willHideViewController:withBarButtonItem:forPopoverController: (phew!) method from UISplitView, one of my students remained silent for a while, and then smiled with his insight:

Objective C is just like Cobol!

I was forced to agree he had a point. 😉
