OpenGL How to start learning OpenGl once again

Recommended Posts

Getting on with OpenGL

Hi all,

It's a long time from the first time period I started to learn OpenGL as a beginner of that language. Now I have forgotten almost everything 
about that language and need to re-start. At the foregoing time I suppose the link below was suggested for me to commence learning OpenGL:
https://learnopengl.com/

My questions are:
1- Is this webpage still the best way to start learning OpenGl for a beginner?
2- Is it up-to-date or is there any better one for me to start which is straightforward, easy to read, complete and new, please?
What is your recommendation please?

Hello,

1. I don't know if there's a best way, everybody doesn't (like to) learn the same way, but what I can say is these tutorials are very easy to follow and understand.

2. It's OpenGL 3.3 so modern OpenGL. So I think you can read this, and search for features that were added in later versions, and learn what you want/need.

You can try youtube tutorial if you like,better for beginner,teach you from how to install opengl and how to debug step by step.

More useful for beginner.

I learned OpenGL using learnopengl.com, but before that I watched OpenGL tutorials from ThinMatrix on Youtube. The tutorials are in Java, which was not that useful to me, but they have great visual explanations for all new concepts. If you are doing C++, I would recommend watching the tutorials (and skipping most of the coding in them), and then following along with learnopengl.
