I am currently reading through OpenGL SuperBible and it reminded me of a project I worked on a while back which I was quite proud of. It was my first real steps into learning OpenGL. It originated as a class project where we were required to display a triangle on the screen using OpenGL. Not satisfied with that, I elaborated on it and ended up with my OpenGL Demo Scene project. Go ahead and check out the project page to see more of it and download a demo scene I put together.
