This one day course will present an introduction to 3D programming with OpenGL® and Qt. It will cover general 3D and OpenGL concepts and the basics of writing pure OpenGL programs. It will review the various Qt classes supporting OpenGL including the newer QOpenGL* classes. It  will discuss writing shaders, lighting and texturing effects.  The use of ANGLE on Windows platforms will be covered as well as OpenGL/ES on embedded systems.  The scope will be Qt version 5 using both C++ and QML. Students should be familiar with the basics of Qt  but do not need prior experience with OpenGL.
