Computer graphics is in many ways a science, but writing the programs that actually generate attractive images is still an art. The best programmers have a large toolbox of general techniques, nuggets of algorithms, and clever insights that they use on a daily basis to make their code faster, more reliable, more accurate, easier to debug, and a pleasure to use. Such toolboxes are compiled through years of experience and trading with other professionals.
