The course is well-organized and presented. Even though I have used Bootstrap for a couple of years, I still find the course informative. I highly recommend this course.


This was a great course. It is very basic, but I learned some things about the framework that I missed in my rush to learn and implement Bootstrap in my projects.


Before I took this course I had a rather difficult time trying to read Bootstrap source code since it contains a lot of divs and classes. After taking this course, I have a much better understanding of how to use Bootstrap and what the primary classes do. With this course, I am now able to comprehend many Bootstrap classes, primarily due to the similarities between them. This course is an excellent reference for understanding the many common Bootstrap classes and how they work together.


I've been playing with Bootstrap for about a year now but never took the time to really understand the basics of how things work (always copying and pasting examples). I appreciated that instead of just showing a complete navbar this course starts with a basic list and works up the chain to get a Bootstrap-enabled and mobile friendly navigation menu explaining the CSS and JS components along the way. Such a great approach and it was a good refresher for me!
