The OpenSceneGraph courses range from beginner through advanced courses, including OpenSceneGraph in depth, as well as companion projects like VirtualPlanetBuilder. The first OSG course to be performed under this new arragnement will take place in early Fall 2010, and will include the following topics.

  • Nodes
  • State & Lighting
  • Visitors
  • Viewing & Manipulating
  • Plugins
  • Optimization

The OSG courses teach the fundamentals of OpenSceneGraph. Developers attending the courses learn the mechanisms behind effective development from scenegraph creation and manipulation through debugging & optimizing. Through instruction and labs, students build scenes and interact with real code from day one. The courses are fast-paced, require creativity and problem solving, and leave users with a thorough immersion in OpenSceneGraph. Instruction is hands-on with numerous labs where students directly turn concepts into practical knowledge.
