I am not an official developer, but I know that paying for the developer program gains access to downloads I do not get and makes you eligible for beta testing new OSX versions. And as to "zero experience in Objective C" ... we all start there.
My $0.02 from one who has read many responses from the very helpful forum contributors who have been developing for years.

Truly said Steve!!
Guys who has been contributing for years does deserve it.
But people like us would be fortunate if we could add value to these products?
Anyways thanks. I will start with 99$ program to get access/download of articles/books to start with.

Others who are developers will undoubtedly step in and call me a useless-intermingler, while giving you more resources for how to start learning Objective C.
Welcome to mac-world. Good luck.
And a request ... please DO NOT award me any points for my useless responses. Save points for those who really help.

As a starter ... I found this by typing "learn objective c" in the "Search communities" box at the upper right of the page:

Steve, your statement about the beta testing is wrong. Just thought you might like to know that being a paying member is not a requirement.
About the Objective C, you can do all sorts of programming without being a member just using good old fashioned C.

Cool. Please take over and help the OP if you have more specific information. I was trying to start with some assistance, but have no heartache over another giving much more useful information.

I'm a Python programmer so I don't have much more useful info on C+, but I do know you can start learning C+ with the free Xcode and all sorts of internet tutorials. You can write a command line interface tool using the free Xcode just for learning purposes. Objective C and Cocoa application programming is for the paying members.
