Packt video courses are designed to cover the breadth of the topic in short, hands-on, task-based videos. Each course is divided into short manageable sections, so you can watch the whole thing or jump to the bit you need. The focus is on practical instructions and screencasts showing you how to get the job done.
An in-depth look at the Twitter Bootstrap framework from the angle of a web designer working on a new client site. The videos offer a relaxed and approachable look into the workflow of a frontend developer.
If you are familiar with HTML, CSS, and basic JavaScript, and want to get a better handle on frontend website design, then this tutorial is for you. Beginners will find the sections on project initiation, folder setup, and deployment extremely useful and will be guided step-by-step through how to create their own site. More experienced users will be able to take advantage of the tips for CSS preprocessing using LESS.

Comments about oreilly Building a Responsive Website with Bootstrap:

I found Brock's video to be an excellent way to learn to use boostrap elements on a real (but simple) static website. I learn best when I'm following examples rather than reading reference textbooks.

Brock speaks clearly and includes lots of useful tips for both using bootstrap elements and building websites in general - for example what tools to use for both Mac and PC.The video is divided into small topic related sections which makes it easy to navigate to sections of interest.

The one downside of learning through watching a video is that if you want to follow along on your own computer you have to stop and copy the code fragments. In doing that I found that bootstrap and some of the tools had changed a bit since the video was produced so I needed to make a few changes. At the end of the series I found that actual demo website is on Brock's server so you can copy code and images from it to reproduce it more accurately. It would have been nice to have a download of the images and other files used.

Overall an excellent introduction to the bootstrap design concepts and how the elements are used in practice. And a bunch of useful ideas, tips and tools as well.
