Looking to do some game development in OpenGL ES

I'm looking to do some game development in my spare time for BB10.  I have had game development experience before and have quite a bit of experience in C++, but I have never used OpenGL.  Are there any online resources or tutorials for OpenGL ES that people would recommend?

This is a good book

OpenGL ES 2.0 Programming Guide

http://www.amazon.ca/OpenGL-ES-2-0-Programming-Guide/dp/0321502795/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362339768...

 

For a description of each function and the parameters:

http://www.khronos.org/opengles/sdk/docs/man/

 

Combine them with a simple google search: "opengl es tutorial" to see example code.

 

This is useful for opengl egl initialization:

OpenGL ES 1 is easier to understand for a beginner, but Opengl ES 2 is more flexable and faster (programmable shaders).
