  • Mark Sorensen
    Great Course!

    This is a perfect introduction to Twitter Bootstrap 2. The lessons and project files are easy to follow and understand and just the right length. A lot of thought has gone in to the project files, especially the way the folders are set up for users who don't want to or can't use PhotoShop. The only downside to this course is that the Twitter Bootstrap is now updated to v3 but I highly recommend this course if you want an understanding of what Twitter Bootstrap is and how it can help you build websites.

  • Jeremy Metcalf
    Nice course

    I picked up a few new things and will enjoy playing around in it.

  • Rohit Nayak
    Great Tutorial!

    Awesome intro into bootstrap .I am really going to use this for designing new websites.

  • Mr. Ivan Bayross
    An excellent course to start using Twitter Bootstrap

    Chris has created a well thought through workflow prior creating this course. The work flow logic is excellent, mapped closely to how a most template developers think and work. This really makes it easy to work through each section of the course and build your template development skills. The code snippets, are an excellent way of quickly crafting the responsive template without getting involved in typos that would prevent the codespec being crafted from working. Then image / asset media queries were explained very simply and elegantly. Thanks Chris. Appreciate the effort put in. Regards, Ivan Bayross

  • Mark Cohen
    A Good Introduction into the use of Twitter Bootstrap 2

    An easy to understand walk through of building a responsive website with Bootstrap 2. The course follows a logical well-paced progression & keeps focused on the Bootstrap features; rather than wasting time explaining the basics of HTML & CSS coding. The instructor provides an excellent level of support via the Udemy Question & Answer facility.
