Programming
This is not a course in programming, but you will do a lot of it.
Everyone is expected to be fluent in C++. We will use OpenGL (any
reference will do) and (for one assignment) Java.
All homework assignment will be done using CS machines (demos
must run on Solaris machines). Preliminary work may be done on
other machines, but beware of differences in OpenGL versions and
capabilities.
Perhaps...demos may be made available on Windows boxes, but in
that case you will be responsible for working out the details.

Protect yourself (but you will be required to make your CS770 directory
world readable)

Cool demo
The only rule is: make me say “cool!”
Should take up the entire last half of the semester...so go through the
HW’s quickly!

Syllabus
See Table of Contents for text
Read Chapters 1-4, now...and keep going
Classroom lectures will bounce around a bit, and will usually present a
different view – often quite different – from that in the textbook
