    Learning OpenGL

    Hi,

    Where do I learn about OpenGL?

    So far I have found the following sites, but I'm looking for extra reading to this... can anyone recommend other good locations?

    https://learnopengl.com
    NeHe
    https://www.haroldserrano.com/articles/

    Does anyone have any other sources?

    It depends on how you learn best.

    Here are a few other sources to consider:



    Finally, when you're net searching for an answer to a specific question, and you haven't been able to resolve it by browsing the spec or extension expects, consider these google search queries:

    • <search phrase> site:opengl.org inurl:registry
    • <search phrase> site:opengl.org inurl:discussion_boards

    I now understand why the information that is generally present in OpenGL guides never really talks about how the GPU talks to the CPU and vice versa. There's simply not enough control present in OpenGL to allow you to specify this like Vulkan will so all the information regarding OpenGL is generally on how to basically load the models and textures into the GPU and the rest is carried out by the ?drivers?. In other words, I think I now understand this concept that OpenGL is a specification!
