My roommate is having a OpenGL weekend. Our mutual friend came over and brought the fifth edition of the OpenGL superbible with him. For the friday evening and most of the saturday they tried to get the OpenGL set up, installing ubuntu and trying four different editors on the way.
I spent most of the sunday just drawing, but when I saw they had managed to get a triangle on the screen, I jumped on the bandwagon and hopefully can learn from their mistakes.
The superbible starts with a simple tutorial, that I am trying out just now. Will post pics of my triangle, if I manage to summon it properly.
Holy cow, it worked right off the bat
