Bootstrap 3

1-day Mobile-first Responsive Design using Bootstrap3 — CSS3-10

Bootstrap TrainingCourse Overview

This mobile-first responsive design course teaches students how to use the Bootstrap 3 CSS framework to build websites with fluid and adaptive grid layouts.

Unlike our primary responsive web design course this Bootstrap3 course is focused entirely on the practicalities of designing websites using this one tool, i.e. it makes little attempt to teach the fundamental responsive web design skills that the other course does.

As such, this course is oriented towards students whose primary purpose is just to get a mobile-first responsive design up and running quickly and immediately. Such students may already have the generic responsive skills or they may plan to acquire them later.

If you fall into the latter category, we'd strongly suggest that you take a look at Responsive Design (CSS3-04) and consider the possibility of taking both courses.

Training Pre-requisites

Delegates should have completed the following Web Design Academy courses, or be able to demonstrate equivalent skills and learning:

We assume that anyone with the skills and knowledge taught in those courses will also have a good conceptual understanding of HTML and enough knowledge of HTML5 to pick up the basics of Bootstrap3 from the introductory module of this course.

Training Style

This Bootstrap course is instructor-led, but extremely practical in orientation. The vast majority of contact time should spent on layered, hands-on, exercises.

Exercises build upon one another. Students will have designed a basic Bootstrap website by the end of the first course module. They will then progressively enhance that site using the Bootstrap concepts and features introduced in the later modules. By the end of the course, students should have a small, but richly featured site, exploiting many of the most popular features of Bootstrap 3.
