In Detail

Frontend development can be quite challenging.Developers want their websites to work on any device while being responsive and easy to navigate. Bootstrap packs it all and allows you to harness it intuitively. Developing websites has never been so fast, easy, and rewarding. If you are into frontend development, Bootstrap makes it simple and quick for you.

In this course we will use the Twitter Bootstrap framework and demonstrate how you can rapidly create dynamic blog layouts and develop websites using modern web tools and techniques such as CSS preprocessors, web fonts, JavaScript, and more.

We will start with an introduction to Bootstrap and quickly move on to building the GRID layout. Here we will set up the Typeography and add Navigation to our layout. Once we are done with the basic architecture we will add styles and take advantage of the Bootstrap Media elements to give a unique look to our website. As soon as our website is up and running, we will wrap up with a glimpse into the next steps you can take to move on to the next level with this project.

Once you complete this course you will be able to effectively use Bootstrap and create unique and responsive websites, all in just 45 minutes.

Comments about oreilly Rapid Bootstrap:

While the speaker sounds like at ease with bootstrap and the like (less), he unfortunately doesn't cover modern css/js tooling : gathering the required resources is made through zip files, copy pasting and so forth, which really feels last century. I was hoping more about grunt/yeoman and the like to know how to update/integrate easily my work when needed.

When speaking more precisely about bootstrap, I felt like it was too much "to do that write this, copy paste this" and not enough about how to figure oneself how to do that, like "it's there on the document, use this stuff, take care of this". So it feels like recipe without knowing the inner workings.

Still, I learnt a few stuff, but it's rather low level and not really empowering IMHO.
