    Where to go after going through https://learnopengl.com/?

    It took me a couple of months to go through the https://learnopengl.com/ tutorial. I am now almost done, and wondering where to go next.

    It is still not clear to me what I want to do. I am finding myself interested in the idea of building engines (graphics and physics), and also the idea of doing computations on the GPU (parallel programming). Not really interested in CGI effects or video games themselves. I do not know what I specifically want to do with what I am learning, but I am enjoying doing graphics programming.

    I have been reading on PBR and GPU programming. I do not have a CUDA enabled device, and OpenCL is proving a bit... opaque if that makes sense.

    Anyways, where do people usually go after learnopengl?

    Edit: I would actually not mind learning other APIs like Direct3D.

    Well, it's a great matter of what you want to do. If you want to go on building engines, then grab some books.

    Here are some books you might be interested in:

    I am currently still working my way through that website, and also http://www.openframeworks.cc

    I've started to feature the openframeworks API in my youtube video library. Feel free to check it out for yourself.

    Let me know what you think, and keep learning, you'll find what excites you!!
