    Programming with OpenGL: An Introduction

Course Organizer(s):



    OpenGL, the standard software interface for graphics hardware, allows programmers to create interactive 2D and 3D graphics applications on a variety of systems. With OpenGL you can create high-quality color images. OpenGL makes it easy to build geometric models, change the viewing position, control the color and lighting of geometric primitives, and manipulate pixel and texture map images.

    This course will cover an immediately applicable subset of OpenGL, so that you can write a simple graphics program, using shading, lighting, texturing and hidden surface removal. We will also discuss the new features in the most recent versions of OpenGL and GLX: OpenGL 1.1 and GLX 1.2.
