There are two basic ways to render. Either use a fixed function pipeline, or a shader program. The fixed function pipeline is the legacy way, while using a shader program is the new way. In OpenGL 2.1, fixed function pipeline will be used if no shader program is used. A fixed function is characterized by the use of glBegin() and glEnd().

With OpenGL 3.1 core, the fixed function pipeline has been removed from OpenGL. You may create a compatibility context to access the fixed-function pipeline again.
