Modern, Mobile-Friendly Websites with Bootstrap (Workshop) presented by TiER1

Bootstrap, an open-source front-end framework, is one of most popular of its kind for building responsive, mobile-friendly projects on the web. Composed of flexible HTML, CSS, and JavaScript components, it allows designers and developers of all skill levels to launch beautiful, fully-functional websites quickly. The best part: it’s completely free to download and use! In this workshop, we will guide you through some best practices when using Bootstrap’s grid system, component library, and JavaScript plugins. We will apply these practices while building a responsive resume site from scratch.

Special thanks to TiER1 Performance Solutions for sponsoring this class and providing refreshments!

This hands-on workshop will cover:
• Downloading Bootstrap and adding it to an HTML document
• Working with Bootstrap’s responsive grid system
• Styling images and buttons with Bootstrap classes
• Working with Bootstrap’s reusable user interface components
