In this course you’ll get an introduction to computer graphics using Metal on the GPU. You’ll render 3D models and even write a simple game using your very own game engine.

This course is for developers interested in understanding low-level computer graphics while achieving high performance in rendering 3D scenes. You’ll need to be comfortable with Xcode and Swift and be prepared to understand some math at a conceptual level.

Covered concepts

  • The Metal Pipeline
  • 3D Models
  • Coordinate Spaces
  • Lighting
  • Materials and Textures
  • Making a game
