+## A note on porting the OSB code ##
+The code quality for the OpenGL Superbible 5th edition is, in a word, _terrible_.  It uses Hungarian notation.  It
+shoves essential functionality into "stock shader" and geometry batching abstractions which defeat the entire purpose
+of teaching OpenGL as an API (It's not the "3D Graphics SuperBible" after all).  Even the indentation style sucks.  All
+in all, it's a great leap backward from the imperfect but still excellent 4th edition. Therefore, these ports are more
+of an _adaptation_ of the OSB examples, but not a perfect replica of them.  The shaders will be kept as similar as
+possible to the originals (sans Hungarian notation), but not tucked away in a library.  Geometry batching won't be
+dropped in from word go, but brought in gradually.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
