Free Online Book: iPhone 3D Programming

You can read “iPhone 3D Programming” online from O’Reilly Labs Open Feedback Publishing System. Do you have a great idea for a graphics-intensive iPhone or iPad application, but don’t know how to bring it to life? This book offers the perfect solution: a crash course on the OpenGL graphics library with an overview of iPhone 3D development.

Description

This book is not an OpenGL manual, but it does teach many basic OpenGL concepts as a means to an end: namely, 3D graphics programming on the iPhone and iPod Touch. Much of the book is written in a tutorial style, and I encourage you to download the sample code and play with it. Readers don’t need a graphics background, nor do they need any experience with the iPhone SDK. A sound understanding of C++ is required; fluency in Objective C is useful but not necessary.
