WebGL may be the BEST introduction to 3D programming - Part 1

Writen by Diane Ware - January 14, 2019 in Programming
If you are a reader of some of my past blog posts, you will be aware that a while back I began a series of blogs for the explanation of the mathematics involved in implementing 3-dimensional (3D) programming. I still plan on doing this. However, along the way in my search for understanding 3D programming, so as to understand more adequately the mathematics involved in 3D programming, I hit a few roadblocks.  The main roadblocks I encountered were the books or tutorials used to teach the particular...

Is your computer running slowly? Here are some possible explanations.

Writen by Diane Ware - December 06, 2018 in Computers
A slow computer is one of the main reasons customers bring their computers to Ware Repair. This blog article will discuss the possible explanations for a slow computer. Hard Drive Failure A faulty hard disk drive, HDD, whether the plates are damaged or the other mechanical moving parts are failing can slow down boot times and slow the overall performance of the computer. As can be seen in the i...

WebGL and HTML5 Canvas - both provide a good introduction to the fundamentals of game programming and 3D programming.

Writen by Diane Ware - November 08, 2018 in Programming
At the start of this blog, I want to point out that I have not relinquished my quest to provide further blogs on the mathematics involved in 3D game programming. And I will provide more blogs in the future about the mathematics involved in 3D programming.  However, in my research to learn more about 3D programming, I headed down the fork in the road toward WebGL.  WebGL is a "JavaScript application programming interface for rendering 2D and 3D graphics within any compatible web browser without the use of plug-ins", as quo...

The mathematics involved in 3D game programming - Vector Algebra Part 2

Writen by Diane Ware - August 23, 2018 in Programming
This is the third blog in a series on the mathematics involved in 3D game programming.  Note: in the previous blog, I mentioned Paul's Online Notes, a website by Professor Paul Dawkins of Lamar University as a source for certain math images and math information, and I will again often use parts of his tutorial notes in this blog.  Vector Algebra - A Review Again, as in the previous blog, I would like to do a review of vector algebra, and do a brief r...

Top Tech June 2018

Writen by Bryan Ware - June 25, 2018 in Software
2018 has been a fun ride so far up to June. As technology becomes more and more a part of our lives, we should all bask in the light of what to expect for the future.  Janurary 2018 Augmented Reality (AR) I’ve long agreed that augmented reality would outpace virtual reality, and this year’s CES event reinforced that for me. Don’t get me wrong—VR is sti...

The mathematics involved in 3D game programming - Vector Algebra

Writen by Diane Ware - June 25, 2018 in Programming
This is the second blog in a series on the mathematics involved in 3D game programming.    Vector Algebra - A Review As was mentioned in the previous blog: Vectors have both magnitude and direction. Vectors are usually represented as a line segment with a starting point, the tail end, and an ending point, an arrowhead. Vectors play an important role in computer graphics, collision detection, and physical simulation in 3D programming. Vectors are...

The mathematics involved in 3D game programming

Writen by Diane Ware - May 03, 2018 in Programming
If you've played three dimensional (3D) games before, you have probably wondered - how do they do this? How do computer programmers create this amazing 3D-space illusion that shows up on the monitor? Two-dimensional space basically allows you to travel left or right, and up or down, and any diagonal variation away from such directions, all on a flat plane, similar to the older style Super Mario Brothers game. These directions and their points are normally given coordinates from x and y axes on the coordinate plane, similar to what...
