Which version of OpenGL is recommended for beginners?

19 February 2014 - 08:31 AM

I've recently decided I should dabble in OpenGL a little, just for fun, and to learn new things, however I'm unsure which version to learn.

I normally always start by learning the latest version, however I'd heard that modern OpenGL uses a level of abstraction that makes it difficult to understand what's going on, and that it's easier to learn if you start with an old version.

Also I'm interested in doing some small games on smaller devices (Pandora, RaspberryPi and iOS), which I believe support OpenGL ES 2.0, which think I read is closer to older OpenGL versions.

If anyone has any suggestions I'd be very appreciative.
