At this meeting we'll cover basics of the Model-View-Controller design paradigm, explore several of the most commonly-used classes in the Foundation framework, and demonstrate building a simple program using Foundation APIs.
Foundation classes (including
NSNumber) are fundamental to the operation of any Cocoa program, and are used extensively throughout AppKit and 3rd-party frameworks and code.
The Model-View-Controller design pattern is central to Cocoa's AppKit and application design. We'll cover why it's so important, how it's different in Cocoa, and how to use it in your apps.
