There are 20 full websites that we will build in this course, and we plan to make over 50 hours of video.
This course will be constantly updated, and with Bootstrap 4 coming out this year, you don't have to worry about this course being outdated.
Here is a list of layouts we will be building:
My Portfolio - A simple Portfolio to get introduced to some of bootstrap's functionality
Daria Layout - With this layout we will dive straight in into making a completely custom layout.
Healthy Blog - A layout for a health-related blog, with a transparent nav and a large header image, using panel component for blog entries and colorful sidebars.

|Section 1: Introduction: Get to Know Bootstrap and It's Grid System|
What is responsive web design? What is Bootstrap? How does it help us develop websites faster? How does the grid system works? All of these questions are answered in this introductory video.
This video describes how the Bootstrap grid works, i.e. how these classes are used: col-xs-*, col-sm-*, col-md-*, and col-lg-*.
In this video, we will discuss the difference between responsive and non-responsive sites. We will also see a non-responsive site changed to a responsive site simply by referencing Bootstrap css and linking to it from our html.
Here we will demonstrate the reason why Bootstrap helps us with RWD: We don't even have to touch css! We just need to reference proper Bootstrap css classes in our html, and we have a responsive site out-of-the-box!
Also, please check out this video's resources, there is a download available!
|Section 2: Layout 1: My Portfolio|
In this video, we will learn how to get the source code of a starter barebones template from the official Bootstrap website, and how to change the navbar by using Bootstrap's pre-made navbar classes.
We will also learn how to start adding responsive placeholders for our images. In other words, we'll start building our responsive layout portfolio.
Please note that there is a download included in this lecture. The download contains the finished code for Layout 01 - My Portfolio.
In this video we will learn how to add responsive images to our portfolio.
This video explains how to style a simple footer and how to properly add custom css classes inside our html structure, as well as how to declare those custom styles in our custom.css file.
In this video, we will build the about me page. We will add some custom styles, use placehold.it for our images, and get introduced with the concept of bootstrap components by adding a component to our about me page.
In this video, we'll add a Google Map to our contact page. We will add an inline form under it and we will use a Bootstrap utility class to hide the map from mobile devices.
