The Big Nerd Ranch today announced the return of Rocco Bowling’s OpenGL Bootcamp for April 30 – May 4, 2007. This five-day course offers a new twist on the standard OpenGL training class, by focusing on advanced level visualization techniques and elevating the materials beyond simply video game development instruction. The class is segmented into 20-25 sections where brief lectures are augmented by anywhere from 30-90 minutes of hands-on exercises, allowing students to immediately put their newfound knowledge into practical use. The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of US$3,500 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and ground transportation to and from the Atlanta airport.
