i’m trying to think about how many ios dev teams actually have (had) someone on staff that was knowledgeable enough in objective-c as a language to comfortably use the runtime apis. i’ve always been the only/most advanced dev for teams i’ve been on but wondering how true that is?

even for something like swizzling a method, while pretty widely used and documented enough to replicate, how much did they actually understand about the language implementation details? how easy is it to get help with that if you aren’t really connected in the community?


i know most of this has fallen by the wayside with the advent of swift but still. i’m sure many people know some terms but not what they mean or how this is handled and operates at runtime to turn into functional code.
