Lab00 has been posted and is due Thursday, August 29, 2019 11:59 PM. You can choose to work via command line with a Makefile or within the CLion IDE. There are starters for both. I recommend CLion if you are comfortable with it because CLion will offer you debug traces and code completion, which is helpful if you can't remember the specific OpenGL API.

Sparse instructions to set up your machines are posted on the resources page. You need to install OpenGL and GLFW. Be comfortable with the following set of commands:
  1. mkdir build
  2. cd build
  3. cmake ..
  4. make
  5. sudo make install (if OS X or *nix)
You're mileage will vary in this process. Use Piazza to help each other out and come to office hours if you are still stuck.

glm is a header only library, so that simply needs to be downloaded and dropped in the right place.

Welcome to CSCI 441 - Computer Graphics! While there is not too much here just yet, here is a quick guide to where everything is. You will be able to find the labs & homework assignments on the assignments page. As we cover more topics and more examples are used in class, they will become available on the resources page. The schedule page will list the reading required for the upcoming class - you will want to visit this page most often. Until then, be sure to look at the syllabus and familiarize yourself with the course and this website. Don't forget to check out the leaderboard as it will very soon have all your heroes listed!
