Ray Tracing in Go

This is a chapter-by-chapter progression through the excellent free ray-tracing books by Peter Shirley:

GoDoc

There are tags at each chapter and commits at each checkpoint within chapters.

Who is this for?

If you're interested in graphics and ray tracing, this is a working example of a simple, easy-to-read ray tracer written in Go. It is built up piece-by-piece in concert with the chapters of the original C++ books by Peter Shirley.

If you're interested in Go, this is a fun, visual way to explore the language. It's fully documented and easy to change in order to create your own ray traced images.
