Knowing how to program in some language is all you?ll need to get started. Some knowledge of JavaScript is useful later on if you wish to make your projects more interactive and engaging. Familiarity with vectors and matrices will ease your way but is not critical.

To be able to see the interactive demos and do programming assignments you need a browser that supports WebGL technology. An up to date version of Chrome or Firefox will work (see our FAQ for more information). You can test if your browser supports this technology by visiting the WebGL project homepage.

Almost all programming will be done in JavaScript using three.js library/API.
