Technologies Used

Objective C, Java, SQL Server

Why these technologies ?

Objective C: Objective-C is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that adds Smalltalk-style messaging to the C programming language. It was selected as the main language used by NeXT for its NeXTSTEP operating system, from which macOS and iOS are derived.

Java: One of the main reasons Java is so popular is its platform independence, which means that Java programs can be run on many different types of computers. A Java program runs on any computer with a Java Runtime Environment, also known as a JRE, installed.

SQL Server: SQL is a special-purpose programming language designed to handle data in a relational database management system. ... Therefore, a SQL Server is a database server that implements the Structured Query Language (SQL). There are many different versions of Microsoft SQL Server, catering for different workloads and demands.
