The Joy of Bootstrap-- Build awesome web pages the easy way

Learn to code awesome, responsive, mobile-friendly web pages, even if you've never programmed with Bootstrap before.

Learn to build awesome browser applications that automatically adjust to mobile devices, even if you've never heard of Bootstrap before

Do you want to build browser applications that make people say "wow!" when they see it? Of course you do! I do too. How about apps that look great on a mobile device and size automatically for different screens? Yep, I want that too. :)

Based on the (included) Amazon Best-Seller 'The Joy of Bootstrap' this course steps you from knowing nothing about Bootstrap to understanding its full potential. The course includes the full text of the book plus each chapter gets its own presentation and sample code.

The goal of this course is to launch you into the subject as quickly as possible and to empower you with the basics right away.

Experiment with the code on the Companion Web Site

The course comes has tons of Bootstrap example source code which you can tweak and play with. It's all available at the companion website where you can even edit the code without downloading it. (Go ahead, try it now!) The course will walk you through all the hard code and explain how it works.

Even better, Udemy offers a 30 day guarantee, so you have nothing to lose by signing up right now.

This is the Bootstrap course for you....

The modules are grouped into easy, logical concepts that work together but still stand on their own. Presenting the book as a Udemy course makes Bootstrap even easier to understand and faster to learn. Every lecture was obsessively edited for clarity.

I write in a fun, conversational style that makes technical topics approachable for beginners. When it makes sense I build on early concepts to take you into progressively more advanced (cool) topics and exercises.

We'll also continue to use the successful metaphor of "Sam's Used Cars", a fictional web site that gives you a context in which to learn along. You'll take a plain and boring HTML website and bring it to life with Bootstrap.

Wondering what Bootstrap is?

Bootstrap is a framework that makes front-end web development faster and easier. A couple of guys at Twitter invented it and later made it open source. Other people have joined in and it is now in it's third major release. Bootstrap 3 is good for people of all skill levels, devices of all shapes, and projects of all sizes.
