OpenGL and its derivatives are the most widely available APIs for creating interactive computer graphics applications across all major platforms. Their uses span virtually all application areas and reveal the most up-to-date features of modern graphics hardware.
In recent years, OpenGL has undergone numerous updates that have fundamentally changed how programmers interact with the application-programming interface (API). The most notable of those changes has been the change to shader-based rendering, which has subsumed almost all functionality of older versions of the API.
Application programmers who want to develop graphical applications but may have limited experience with computer graphics. Application programmers who have been writing applications with desktop OpenGL or OpenGL ES 2.0. Educators who are contemplating switching their courses from desktop OpenGL to WebGL.
