Master the OpenGL and GLSL shading language—by writing code! Illustrated theory and practice (from basics to advanced)

This course is designed to give you an easy and visual introduction to the amazing world of computer graphics (using OpenGL, GLSL, and C ++). In fact, the course is very easy to master because it is practical, visual, and well illustrated, to help you develop your visual intuition when it comes to 3D programming models (I developed some beautiful illustrations and visualizations—just to show you how things work under the hood). This course will help you build the proper mental models of the underlying concepts and processes of OpenGL and 3D math (because they’re tricky). There are live coding sessions and you have full access to the source code for each lesson.

The course covers all the important topics of modern OpenGL, such as:

  • Geometry, and buffers, VBOs, and VAOs
  • Transformations and matrix stacks
  • Shaders and GLSL,
  • Some procedural art (and GLSL shader-generated images)
  • Texturing and lighting

This course is designed to start from the very beginning and gradually moves on to more advanced topics such as shaders, matrices, transformations, the GLSL language, raster effects, texturing, and shading.
