    OpenGL => For desktop
    OpenGL ES => For embedded devices

    ES is similar but definitely different than OpenGL for desktop. I recommend you start by learning OpenGL on a platform you are comfortable working with. If you want to target OpenGL ES devices downloading the PowerVR SDK is a must. They contain invaluable documentations, training courses and other demo source code.

    The Khronos website contains the API reference and some examples too:
    http://www.khronos.org/developers/resources/opengles/#texamples
    Take a look at that “Jellyfish From Outer Space” example for instance it’s perfect to get started.

    If you are completely new to 3D Computer Graphics I recommend you start with ES 1.1 as ES 2.0 might be a bit overwhelming for newbies.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Slion, this is sensible advice, although I would recommend new programmers to dive straight into ES 2.0 simply because any new devices will support this API and the ES 1.x API is not compatible with the newer ES 2.0. Once past the initial learning curve, then ES 2.0 is a much more uniform API for learning more advnaced effects.
