Readings on the State of the Art in Rendering

Last week at work a junior colleague asked me where do I get the presentations I’ve been reading from. This made me realise that, understandably, it might not be so obvious and common knowledge for people just starting graphics programming so I compiled a list of online resources I am frequently using to study the state of the art in Rendering.

It appears that with all those graphics APIs, the many freely available game engines, the multitude of graphics frameworks and games that continuously raise the bar in graphics, people feel intimidated and overwhelmed. They don’t know where to start. Continue reading “How to start learning graphics programming?”
