1992–
1996–1998
Some NeXTSTEP and WebObjects (until WO moved to Java)
1997–
I'd followed the development of NeXT with interest, and even played with one in 1989, but didn't get to really play with Objective C++ at home until a developer release of Rhapsody for PowerPC Macs in 1997.
1997–1998
Decided to write all of the programs in my Machine Learning course in Objective-C---mainly just for kicks. It was fun.
2002
Did learn enough to write a simple Mac freeware app' during first years of house arrest, when time was on my hands. Found it a tad too much like C++ to actually enjoy...
2002–
2003–
A few basic OS X apps and an abortive attempt at an iPhone app. I just don't have the patience for memory management anymore!
2005–
Some hobby coding on Mac OS, more serious work on iPhone OS.
2005–
2006–
Amazing messaging. True object orientation. Cocoa is cool. However, it is too much verbose.

Totally in love with this language, but its marriage to Apple's platform complicates things.

Big Nerd Ranch's Firehose course. Don't remember much.

Haven't had much time to work with Objective-C but try to fiddle with it from time to time.
2008–
Every few months I come back to Objective C. I love the natural syntax and wish more languages would follow its lead.
2008–2010
Dug into this briefly in 2008, but put it aside for a year until I build a few toy iPhone apps in late 2010.
2008–
I really like the way things are verbose in Foundation as well as Cocoa. I really dig the delegation pattern in Cocoa.

Learnt Objective-C in order to write an iPhone app at work.

I dabble.

TDD'ing this is hard. Not impossible. Just hard. Need to do more. I do small apps for fun that I never release to the store. That needs to change as well.

if you love brackets, that the way to go.

Learned me some Obj-C for an iPhone app project.

2009–
Started in earnest at iPhone Dev Camp in 2009; still playing around with iPhone apps (including one for work).
2009–
2009–
I discovering the vestiges of Smalltalk's beauty buried deep beneath Objective-C's absurd verbosity, I learned to see OO as a chain of call and response rather than glorified structs on a raft of philosophy. Only after that did I fall in love with the language. XCode didn't hurt.

I have two iPhone apps to my credit: "Sync and Speak," which reads RSS feeds aloud, and "Geek: Game of Champions," a game that I've ported to many systems to learn more about them. Both suffer from the fact that I wasn't working with a designer when I created them, but I picked up the desired skillset along the way. I hate the lack of garbage collection on the iPhone, but very much like the tolerant way message passing works.

Had a look into this when I got interested in iPhone development. After a couple of days I decided "Bugger this, i'll make a web app!"

Such an amazing language when coming from something low level like C... Gotta love the message syntax, so verbose, yet so beautiful

Stupid business trend of making iPhone apps.

The allure of the native iPhone application finally hit me this year. It only took having some viable ideas of my own that gave me the motivation to jump into learning what most people tend to see as an "everybody wants to do it, but few follow through" type of language. Objective-C has provided me with a lot of new experiences and feelings of accomplishment, mainly because I'm building for a device for the first time.

I actually am coming back to Objective-C now that Xcode is so much better. But Xamarin is still tempting because I can write Android apps and not have to use Java.

Spent two months learning. Couldn't afford a legal Mac machine. GNU Step sucks in practice. I loved it but have no practical use for it at the moment.
