Welcome to CS 1230!
Welcome to CS 1230, the longest-running computer graphics course in the known universe!
This course offers an in-depth exploration of fundamental concepts in 2D and 3D computer graphics. It introduces 2D raster graphics techniques (image creation/manipulation/filtering), as well as 3D modeling, viewing, and rendering (using both raytracing and real-time rendering on the GPU). Along the way, you'll learn to program in C++ and the shading language GLSL, and learn to use the OpenGL library. The course culminates in an open-ended group final project in which you and your teammates use the skills you've learned throughout the semester to make some cool visual effects.
Check out the course missive for more information on prerequisites, assignments, workload, etc.
