Xcode - Is the compiler that you will use to write, edit, and run your code.

ObjectiveC - Is the programming language most often used on the Macintosh

Cocoa - Is a collection of APIs and Frameworks that allow you to easily interact with the Mac OS.

That's a good question. In fact, a great question! Many people are confused about what all these names are, what they have in common, and what sets them apart. I hope I can help to clear up some of the confusion...

Xcode: This is Apple Inc.'s published IDE (or Integrated Development Environment) that is free to download and use on any Mac. You USE Xcode to build projects, write, compile, and run code from a multitude of programming languages.

Objective-C: This is a programming LANGUAGE that is designed to be a powerful and self-contained implementation of Object Oriented Programming using C as it's set language. This means that code written in Objective-C can be included in C code, or even most C++ code.

Cocoa: This is Apple's published FRAMEWORKS for Objective-C programming. Cocoa contains classes, data structures, and other items to help you write code faster, and make your code interchangeable on any machine that supports Cocoa. This framework is provided so that you don't have to build common classes for yourself.
