Bootstrap is a new CSS / JavaScript framework that (among other things) solves many common UI problems in web development. Everything from making sites responsive, to integrating drop-down menus, good typography, popups, pagination and so no becomes much easier with Bootstrap! We'll start with the basics of how to install Bootstrap and start adding it to your projects. Then we'll cover using some of the built-in features such as making your sites responsive, nav bars, buttons, menus, and much more! No knowledge of ColdFusion required, this all works with plain CSS (and maybe a tad of JavaScript if we start to get extra fancy).
