An Introduction to WebGL

16th October 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at An Introduction to WebGL

Have you always wanted to get into WebGL but not entirely sure where to start? Carl Bateman joins us at Algorithmic Art for this introductory tutorial!

WebGL allows you to create visual elements on a web page which are accelerated by the GPU, special hardware inside your computer. It is an open web standard, and all modern web browser support it through Javascript.

Here is an example of animated fluid dynamics taken from a set curated by Google.

We're lucky to have Carl Bateman introduce us to WebGL, and compare how we implement algorithms through WebGL's Javascript API, with the related GLSL shader language. We covered GLSL previously.

This is an introductory tutorial so you don't need to be familiar with WebGL already, but some understanding of web technologies (html, javascript) would be helpful but not essential.
