Need a volunteer to peer review some code

Mon Jul 23, 2012 9:27 am

Hello folks. I am in the process of learning open GL ES and I need a volunteer to have a look at the code I’ve written and check that I’m not making any faux pas or doing anything I shouldn’t. Someone to criticise it basically, an exercise I hope I’ll learn something from.

So to recap;

I’ve never done any 3D programming myself before, but I have done a lot of industrial business applications for big companies like Universal Music etc. So I can program well but I have never done anything like this before. I have also done a bit of modelling work in 3D Studio Max so I understand the concept of points, lines, polygons and textures etc.

I had a good long look around on the net for Open GL ES tutorials and I ended up finding this blog;
http://iphonedevelopment.blogspot.co.uk ... le-of.html
The blog is intended for teaching ogles for iPhone developers, so I have been working through it, reading everything so I can conceptually understand it and converting the code to run on the Raspberry Pi.

I managed this by slightly reverse engineering the hello_triangle example that comes with the Debian SD card image. Keeping parts of it which set up the screen but removing everything to do with the cube.

I am also kind of looking for a programming buddy to kind of keep me on the right path so to speak. If you might be up for this, either leave a message below or send me a PM and I’ll explain what all this is about.

Cheers
Dave

I'm learning OpenGLES as well, so feel free to give me a shout sometime. May not know it so well, but sometimes its good to hear from people who are probably making the same mistakes!

I'm happy for you to send me emails/PM's with any questions. I've been programming with OpenGL for about 8 years now, and OpenGL ES for about 18 months.
