"The Road to Vulkan" - Teaching Vulkan in Introductory Graphics Courses


Johannes Unterguggenberger, TU Wien

In our paper "Vulkan all the way: Transitioning to a modern low-level graphics API in academia" [1], we describe how we transitioned an introductory graphics course associated with a visual computing curriculum from OpenGL to Vulkan. This entry provides the link to the framework that we have used [2], which can conveniently be set up using a GitHub starter template [3]. The attached file contains the tasks descriptions for the first steps to be taken by a student in Vulkan territory and consitutes the scope of Assignment 1 as described in our paper [1].

How To Debug GPU-Based Programs?


Ying Zhu (PI) and G. Scott Owen (Co-PI), Computer Science Department, Georgia State University

This web site contains three comprehensive debugging guides for GPU based programming: OpenGL, WebGL, and OpenCL. The target audience is college students taking 3D graphics programming courses, game programming courses, or heterogeneous computing courses. Novice to intermediate level 3D graphics or GPGPU programmers can benefit from learning GPU debugging techniques. Instructors can use this web site to supplement their regular course materials.


High Dynamic Range Imaging


Kirt Witte, Professor of Visual Effects, Savannah College of Art and Design.

High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRi) emphasizes the integration of computer-generated objects or characters into real world video or film footage. High Dynamic Range Imaging seeks to develop and integrate photography, lighting, and rendering into various 3D and 2D software applications by utilizing digital images containing light information more accurately than traditional digital imaging means
