This web site is designed to help you master shader-based OpenGL programming using a standard software architecture commonly employed in interactive programs. Shader-based OpenGL is an API whose design is based on a view of graphics programming in which modeling and rendering are cooperative undertakings between the CPU and the GPU.

The books shown here are the definitive learning and reference sources for shader-based OpenGL. In addition, the opengl.org web site is the first place you should visit when looking for all things OpenGL: documentation, references, discussion forums, etc.
