What does it take Programming Developing PDF #204 to build an iPhone app with stunning D graphics This book will show you how to apply OpenGL graphics programming techniues to any device running the iPhone OS including the iPad and iPod Touch with no iPhone development or D graphics experience reuired iPhone D Programming provides clear stepbystep instructions as well as lots of practical advice for using the iPhone SDK and OpenGLYou'll bu. Excellent book for a CC programmer that s not too interested in learning Objective C and Cocoa It starts by making an Objective C wrapper which is just enough to interface with iOS and pass along all the messages to the C backend for processing Why should you do this Portability Approaching your game this way will enable you to port it much uicker and easier to Android or even develop in tandembr br I ve got a background in games development with OpenGL and DirectX so all the concepts were easy enough to understand but I wouldn t recommend this to a beginner I d also suggest getting the Official Guide to OpenGL ES 20 to go with it as a complete reference to all OpenGL ES functions

    Excellent book for a C/C programmer that's not too interested in learning Objective C and Cocoa. It starts by making an Objective C wrapper which is just enough to interface with iOS and pass along all the messages to the C backend for processing. Why should you do this? Portability. Approaching your game this way will enable you to port it much quicker and easier to Android, or even develop in tandem.I've got a background in gam

    Familiarity with multi dimension Matrix and vector maths are required to understand the first third of the book along with a solid understanding of advance C syntax such as templates. Since the book relies heavily on authors own templates/generics library of classes data type etc. For me personally this just adds an extra layer of complexity to an already difficult area. I prefer all the basic concepts to be explained using the actual pr

    The book provides tutorials for creating a few simple OpenGL ES apps for ios. Strangely the bulk of the sample code is in C rather than objective C, so it can't be considered as doing things the Apple way.The boo

    Una guía muy útil para empezar, te enseña a resolver los mismos problemas tanto con OGL ES 1.0 como con 2.0, de hecho te enseña a programar simultáneamente con ambos, para que las apps sean compatibles.Si ya conoces OpenGL pero quieres trabajar con Iphone, es una gran opción.

    bello, chiaro, forse il codice degli esempi é un po datato ma nel complesso risulta utile. La parte sulle pipeline programmabile é

    N'ayant aucune connaissance en OpenGL ES et voulant le découvrir sur iOS. Ce bouquin est celui qu'il vous faut pour comprendre les bases de la programmation 3D. Une étape nécessaire et très enrichissante.

    本書の特筆すべき特徴は、OpenGL ES 1.1と2.0について書かれてあることです。同じ例

    The book should be called iPhone 3D programming for C programmers. For a C programmer wanting to know how to minimize the use of Objective C this would be a great book. However as I am an iOS ObjectiveC programmer seeking to increase my understanding of Open GL ES, to be asked to learn a completely new language is totally undesirable. I'll be sending it back to .

    This book is exactly what I was looking for. I needed a book that explained the exact opengl es 2.0 api that is used in iOS. This book's examples are in C , which is perfect because I plan to use mostly c in my iOS app's logic and graphics code. Objective C programmers will probably be scared off by the use of C and STL in this book, but they shouldn't be. If you're writing games or any kind of cpu intensive

    The book is a goldmine of information, but it is a struggle for the newbie. Going in I had plenty of C experience but no OpenGL experience, and I found the text obscure in places. But applying effort to the study seems to get me throu

    This is the first book I bought on iPhone/iPad 3D graphics programming. The author did excellent job on presenting modern OpenGL ES programming in a clear way. The book contains lots of examples using both OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 APIs. The first six chapters are very detailed in explaining the code. The last three chapters are faster paced but still contain good explanation on important portions of the code. I like the presentation of code th

    This book is a FANTASTIC launching point for any IOS development whether you are using 3D or not.The book assumes no (zero, zip, zilch) knowledge about objective C and explains everything clearly and concisely [I just love concise]. If you already know Objective C, you can skim, if you no nothing or have forgotten something (like I am constantly doing) the book's approach is great. Experts might complain that it spend

    This book was written pre GLKit, so teaches many techniques that are hard to find now. The level of understanding given and the range of information is great. If I had to give up all my graphics books but one, this would be the one I'd keep.

    While I do not like C and prefer objective c for this particular application templates are a handy tooland usage of c is understandable. This book also got me over aversion to the desktop open gl.If you like the oldies the
