Get Started Fast with Modern OpenGL ES Graphics Programming for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

OpenGL ES is a foundation technology that underlies the amazing media exhibited by iPhone applications, but its inherent cross-platform capabilities extend its appeal to game authors, scientists, and multimedia authors regardless of their chosen development platform. The hardest part of learning OpenGL today is finding information and examples that are pertinent today. You have to filter out all of the background clutter found in the OpenGL standard, which includes obsolete code, suboptimal approaches, and anachronistic practices that have built up over 20 years of rapidly shifting graphics hardware technology and at least 12 different versions of the standard. Learning OpenGL ES for iOS: A Hands-on Guide to Modern 3D Graphics Programming will provide a gentle introduction to graphics technology and serves as a no-nonsense, practical starting point for readers. All of the modern uses of OpenGL are discussed, while the book also avoids distracting readers with obsolete or irrelevant parts of the standard. OpenGL ES is clearly the future of cross-platform graphics technology, and it will continue to be used in all of the modern phones and game consoles for years to come.
