Bootstrap Basics 2
The Basics of Bootstrap
When I first heard about Bootstrap, I was just learning about creating layouts. So, I wasn’t that good at styling and dealing with responsiveness. The UWD course that I took created by Brad Hussey was a damn good course. Especially because it gave me a useful portfolio. At this point of the course he went through all the basics of bootstrap and how effective it is. At the time I was learning I thought it was a twitter cheat code to the development game. You mean to tell me all I have to do is master bootstrap and I can “look” like a professional web developer.
Of course there is way more to it than that. Nothing is simple in this industry.
Back at the time of the course, Bootstrap was coined as “Twitter Bootstrap.” A mere marketing tool that was very practical and powerful. Of course that worked on me as well. Without knowing bootstrap, I immediately started to like it and see its value. The twitter guys were smart and influenced me. Truth is you don’t have to use it. With that being said you can somewhat compare bootstrap to salt.
“You don’t have to use it but if you don’t you might regret it.”
That’s easy to say as a rookie. However, the more I learn about CSS and other tools I realized that if you know what you are doing you don’t really need bootstrap. It’s still valuable but not so mandatory.
The page overall looks great but it’s just a bootstrap template that only contains little of what it can do.
