Last Updated: January 10, 2020

Objective-C is the primary programming language used when writing software for the Apple operating systems OS X and iOS. As a superset of C, it provides object-oriented capabilities and a dynamic runtime. On top of the syntax, primitive types, and flow-control statements of C, Objective-C adds syntax for defining classes and methods, and it also adds language-level support for object graph management and object literals, while providing dynamic typing and binding.

While Objective-C is not a beginner language, students with prior object-oriented programming experience who want to start developing apps for iOS are good candidates for Objective-C bootcamps and courses. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for application developers is $103,000, and the job market for software developers as a group is projected to grow by 21% between 2018 and 2028, which is much faster than the 5% projected rate of growth across all occupations.

There are many bootcamps available for people who are interested in developing for iOS and macOS. Below, SwitchUp lists those bootcamps and the material they include, alongside alumni reviews of their quality and value.
