The Big Nerd Ranch today announced the newest addition to its roster of five-day, intensive courses for programmers and system administrators, OpenGL Bootcamp with instructor Rocco Bowling. The class, slated for September 11-15, 2006, offers an exciting and unique twist on the standard OpenGL class. OpenGL has already achieved star status in the realm of game development and most courses available on this technology emphasize this aspect of its utility. In contrast, the Big Nerd Ranch’s OpenGL Bootcamp elevates OpenGL’s possibilities and offers students the opportunity to delve into more advanced and sophisticated uses for this robust graphic visualization language and provides them with the knowledge and experience to apply OpenGL in ways beyond the average.
