I came across Crank Software's Storyboard Suite whilst researching OpenGL ES2
It now, apparently, also handles OpenGL ES2.
It seems well suited to use in teaching as it hides a lot of the "gnarly" OpenGL ES2 details from
those more interested in creating rich graphics rather than "low level coding" ...
Has anybody explored its use on the RaspberryPi ?
If you are also experimenting with it on an Android or other platform any observations and experiences
would be most useful

If you just want to Graphics etc in an easy manner I would look at the QtonPi project as this will allow you to do similar things but is free

HI Jon,
Many thanks for this ....
... Free and does the job so in many ways better for teaching in these "depressed" times ...
Have you come across the following : (also at
I liked the Lego case for the RaspberryPi ...

Hi there,
Some positive feedback from various sources re. the RaspberryPi workshops I posted on ...
so, I have been sketching out an introductory two day OpenGL ES2 workshop ....
Sufficient to provide an overview of the essential concepts, and to be able to build, run, and
modify OpenGL ES2 examples on the raspberryPi.
I've also been pondering on a C++ programming workshop ... covering the basics as well as some Arduino like C++ classes for use with RaspberryPi interfacing projects.
All contributions gratefully accepted
