Learning Objective-C was never the limiting factor for me writing native OS X code. The hard part about it was always figuring out the APIs. It's one of those things where if you have someone to teach you it's great, but learning on your own is time consuming and tedious and frustrating.

As much as I like using JS for scripting purposes in the OS, I feel like with this, I have the same problem: namely that the cocoa APIs are massive and I have trouble understanding what's going on, even after trying to learn them three or four times in the past decade.
