    I'm currently learning C and plan on learning both C++ and Objective C, is there a better language to learn after learning C or does it not make a difference?

    C - C++ - Objective C
    or
    C - Objective C - C++

    I don't think there's much of a difference which path you choose. I did C then Java, and later learned C++.

    Both C++ and Objective C (along with Java) are object-oriented languages based on the original C which is not object-oriented. So long as you learn C first, you'd get a grounding in the basic C principles which can be extended to OO languages like C++ and Objective C.

    Objective C is most useful for programming Apple devices, such as writing iPhone/iPad apps, which also requires a Mac and mastery of the Cocoa API. C++ is widely used cross-platform.

    Beginners new to coding are probably best off starting with Python. C/C++/Objective-C are more hard-core languages.
