Learning WebGL has a new owner: Tony Parisi

I’m delighted to announce that as of today, this website has a new curator and owner: Tony Parisi. Tony co-created VRML, the first 3D toolkit for the web, in the mid-90s, and has been writing and lecturing on developing applications in WebGL for the last two years — his excellent book on it was recently published by O’Reilly.

It’s fantastic news that he’s been able to step up and take over the blog, making sure you won’t lack for news and tutorials. I wish him the best of luck and look forward to the cool new stuff he’s planning to add here — come back over the next day or so for announcements about that.

So, from me… it’s been a great experience running Learning WebGL, and now that it’s in safe hands for the future, I can safely say so long, and thanks for all the fish. Thanks to everyone who’s sent in a link to a demo, commented, and otherwise got in touch over the years. You’ve made this blog what it is.

    Hi, Giles

    As the chinese translator of your great WebGL tutorials, I want to say that it really helps many developers to know, to learn WebGL. Sometime before, everyweek the best moment was reading your WebGL weekly update. Thank you!

    Thanks Giles for your work. I learned WebGL and followed the news about it on your website since the beginning.

    Good luck to Mr Parisi. I read your book during this last Christmas holidays ;-)

    Fantastic to hear, and thanks Giles for everything up until now.

  14. I just stumbled on your tutorials because I’m addicted to the free versions of Minecraft right now and interested in creating something in my browers. I looked at some of the original NeHe tutorials when I did work in OpenGL for a graphics course a few years ago so I like what Giles is done.

    I remember Tony’s name from the VRML days. Great too see you out there Tony! Still not sure HOW exactly I know your name but… I have a copy of both of Bernie Roehl’s REND386 books and glad to see I can learn something of WebGL.

    Keep up the good work!
