C# vs Objective-C: What are the differences?
What is Objective-C? The primary programming language you use when writing software for OS X and iOS. Objective-C is a superset of the C programming language and provides object-oriented capabilities and a dynamic runtime. Objective-C inherits the syntax, primitive types, and flow control statements of C and adds syntax for defining classes and methods. It also adds language-level support for object graph management and object literals while providing dynamic typing and binding, deferring many responsibilities until runtime.
C# and Objective-C belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
"Cool syntax", "Great lambda support" and "Great generics support" are the key factors why developers consider C#; whereas "Ios", "Xcode" and "Backed by apple" are the primary reasons why Objective-C is favored.
According to the StackShare community, C# has a broader approval, being mentioned in 697 company stacks & 1163 developers stacks; compared to Objective-C, which is listed in 851 company stacks and 363 developer stacks.
