OpenGL ES is an Application Programming Interface (API) specification for 3D computer graphics programming that offers 3D geometric object generation, image manipulation and high-quality scene rendering.
In this tutorial, we will present the evolution of an OpenGL ES application development and execution flow across software and hardware threads and through virtual and physical embedded hardware targets. The entire flow is driven with a unified native Software IDE with embedded hardware visibility and profiling features.
The tutorial will delve into all aspects of software-driven debugging and optimization while migrating from a pure virtual prototype target, and software rendering implementation across to graphical processing engine executing on an emulator or a physical board.
The real-world impact of the flow described in this tutorial is far reaching. Graphical applications such as visual computing, image processing and 3D animation and navigation are a fundamental component of many modern mobile, automotive and gaming devices.
