State-of-the-art with WebGL 2.0 [Short Course]

  • Full Conference Pass
  • Full Conference 1-Day Pass

Date/Time: 30 November 2017, 04:15pm - 06:00pm
Venue: Nile 3
Location: Bangkok Int'l Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC)

Presentation Language: English

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: Attendees are expected to have a basic understanding of how graphics rendering hardwares work. Rendering techniques like parallelism, buffering, ray tracing, and post-processing are not required. Basic knowledge in APIs like OpenGL, DirectX, Vulkan, or Metal is sufficient.

Intended Audience: This course is intended for technical engineers, practitioners, developers, and designers who are curious about what goes under the hood. They will take away a broad understanding of WebGL 2.0, and an in-depth knowledge of some optimisation techniques.
