In fact there is nothing out of date about coding because when you learn a thing it is easy to up to date and old codes are easy to understand. I suggest you to learn every code to improve your vision. Have a nice morning sir !( 7:02 AM here, still coding.)

I have to disagree with James, here. The NeHe tutorials were a great way to learn OpenGL, back in the 2.0 days. But with the advent of programmable shaders, it's a whole new ball game, and little of the old knowledge really transfers well.

This is a fantastic, new (2012) monograph/tutorial that does things the "modern" way, using programmable hardware. I really can't say enough good things about it. It's certainly book-like, although it's online-only for now. Maybe the author will publish a paper version when it's done.
