Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction: Get to Know Bootstrap and It's Grid System
08:47

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.

02:57

This video describes how the Bootstrap grid works, i.e. how these classes are used: col-xs-*, col-sm-*, col-md-*, and col-lg-*.

05:46

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
08:30

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.
