Ever have one of those moments, after a flurry of activity, and realized what you’ve accomplished? Now that this summer is over, I realized that I’ve talked a lot. Three CocoaHeads presentations. Back-to-back 90 minute sessions at two CocoaConfs. Taught a week-long class with some extra evening sessions. Granted, that’s not a lot considering some folks who teach week-long classes a couple of times a month, or professional speakers out on a circuit, but for Just Some Dude who’d rather be writing software, it’s a lot.

Cocoa has a number of classes that can hold arbitrary amounts of Stuff. Things like arrays, dictionaries, sets, index sets, character sets, strings, data, strings, and so on. These classes come in two flavors, mutable and immutable.

I like warnings. I really do. It reminds me that the compiler loves me and is looking out for me. (OK, the compiler at least tolerates me.)
