Back when Apple purchased NeXT, developers who were worried about the future of their beloved Objective-C programming language wore t-shirts to WWDC with the phrase
[objc retain]; emblazoned on the front. This grass-roots campaign succeeded in keeping Objective-C relevant on the Mac from 1997's Rhapsody…but for how much longer?
Nowadays, we realise that the best home for Objective-C is free software, where we can look after it ourselves on whatever platforms we choose. Join us, in the world of liberated Objective-C!
We stream live Objective-C programming every week, using the GNUstep tools on free software platforms. You can watch in our HLS player and chat in Mattermost, but if you'd prefer you can do both in Twitch.
