Net.tutsplus has released Part III of the WebGL Essentials tutorial. Building on part one and two, this third installment covers Lighting and 2.5D.
The Khronos Group has posted most of the slide presentations from the SIGGRAPH BOFs online. Slide sets include COLLADA, OpenCL, OpenGL, OpenGL ES and WebGL. Developers will be particularly interested in these slides which include overviews of OpenGL 4.3, OpenGL ES 3.0 and CLU extension. There is also the slide deck from Kurt Akeley.
It’s the Khronos Group biggest day at Siggraph. Starting at 1pm in the JW Marriott L.A. Live Gold Ballroom Salon 3:
- News Conference 1pm
- COLLADA BOF 2pm
- OpenCL BOF 3pm
- WebGL BOF 4pm
- OpenGL ES BOF 5pm

- OpenGL Party 7pm Salon 1, 2 & 3
Please meet Work Group Chairs, Khronos founding members and other technology experts at the Khronos Group News Conference and BOFs. The first hour of our day is especially created for the press to get all the Khronos news in one shot. but of course you are encouraged to attend all of our BOFS to get more detail and to attend the very special OpenGL 20th anniversary party
It's been an incredible week hasn't it? The latest news about OpenGL rendering Zombies faster than Direct3D really got the twittersphere going! SimLab Composer 2013 adds WebGL export capability and ARM has submitted the Mali-T604 GPU for full profile OpenCL conformance. Back on the Khronos front, COLLADA still has room for you to come on over and show off your COLLADA demo at Siggraph, and we've also updated the official Khronos Siggraph event page with updated BOF schedules, and lots more sponsors for the OpenGL Party! Thank you everyone that has sponsored the party so far. Big news this year, it's OpenGL's 20th Anniversary and we'll be celebrating this momentus occasion in style.There will be lots of OpenGL legends, lots of food, drink and of course, lots and lots of prizes!
Going to SIGGRAPH? Be sure to check out some amazing demo's, presentations, prizes and more. Khronos has a news conference, five BOFs (COLLADA, OpenCL, WebGL, OpenGL ES & OpenGL) and a huge OpenGL party, all happening on Tuesday next week. Full details can be found here, and the party details can be found here.
The new release of SimLab Composer 2013 gives designers, artists and architects the ability to export 3D models from different files formats (including STEP, SketchUp, SolidWorks, FBX, Inventor, OBJ and SolidEdge) as WebGL models that can be natively viewed on Chrome, Firefox and Safarai, and using chrome frame on Internet explorer.
You can find updated schedules for all Khronos Group BOFs online.
Net-tuts has a simple to following WebGL essentials tutorial online. A great place to start learning.
