I see nopper has some modern examples.


Be careful jumping in at the deep end though. The fixed function pipeline can be a real aid to learning concepts for the beginner even if you move to shaders later and nehe has exhaustive tutorials with a lot of explanatory and descriptive text:

Great site!

I second this.

If you find this tutorial difficult, I designed my OpenGL tutorial (http://lazyfoo.net/tutorials/OpenGL/index.php) as a stepping stone to the arc synthesis tutorial. It uses fixed function pipeline to make things easier in the beginning then moves on to modern OpenGL in the end.
