Modern OpenGL: Introduction

This training provides a comprehensive introduction to modern OpenGL development. Beginning with the basic concepts, all the fundamental topics to develop flexible, high performance OpenGL code that run on the desktop and embedded / mobile devices will be covered. Key techniques including lighting, texturing, framebuffer objects and transformations are introduced, in a format suitable for any developer working in C or C++.

Course Contents

“The training was excellent. Sean Harmer knows the ins and outs of OpenGL and I would really recommend everyone interested in 3D graphics to follow this course.”
– Eddy Alleman, EDAL solutions BVBA
