Specifically what you're going to learn in this course is why Bootstrap is key to building great web projects. How Bootstrap can help you build better looking and better performing websites. We'll show you how to add Bootstrap to your project, how to customize Bootstrap so it doesn't look like every other Bootstrap site out there on the web. We'll introduce you to the Bootstrap basics, see how Bootstrap can help you implement the common metaphors that websites mostly use. We'll then show you the jQuery plugins that are included with Bootstrap. And then finally round it out with a walkthrough of how to migrate a Bootstrap 2 site to a Bootstrap 3 site. The way this course works is that we want you to see this actually working. We're not going to just spend time inside of PowerPoint bullet points. You're going to learn through observation.
