A summary by James Bedford.
Cocoa is a framework of tools used for software development written in Objective-C, featuring modular, object-oriented and visual design. It was originally called NextSTEP and was developed by the company NeXT. When NeXT merged with Apple in 1996, the framework NextSTEP was renamed Cocoa. However, it still remains that all objects within this framework begin with the prefix “NS”, which helps to distinguished them and prevent accident errors.
