DescriptionThis course provides an introduction to computer graphics techniques and developing interactive applications using WebGL. It focuses on the concepts and techniques used for rasterization-based rendering in a simple, cross-platform, web-based environment that provides an interactive experience for the attendee.
Prerequisites To best experience the course, attendees should be able to read simple computer programs written in JavaScript, C, C++, or Java and have a basic knowledge of computer graphics concepts, equivalent to the SIGGRAPH fundamentals course. No previous experience writing graphics applications is required.
Intended Audience Attendees who should reap the most benefit from this introductory course are web application programmers who want to develop graphical applications but may have limited experience with computer graphics. An application programmer who has been writing applications with desktop OpenGL also should benefit from this course, as would educators who are contemplating switching their courses to using WebGL or three.js as the graphics API.
