It is easy to learn, open source, customizable, and coupled with an incredible support from the community; in short it is truly worth your time! This course walks you through the fascinating arena of web development, giving you a grid-based framework that’s easy to work on and saves the time that goes into CSS framework development.

You will see how to create a “PACKT CMS’ application, which will have a custom CMS layout with amazing real-time features. This will enable PACKT to create new courses, and users to view all the data in an advanced table format and get a dashboard overview of all the courses, views, subscriptions, and so on.

We'll start with a dedicated video that explains the intricacies of the different components in our application, including hacks and gotchas to master bootstrap code. We will spice up our application by using Bootstrap JavaScript plugins such as modals, tooltips, popovers, alerts, and tabs. We will also use third-party JavaScript plugins for various elements you’ll be relying on day to day.

You'll find out how to migrate your existing application to Bootstrap 4 seamlessly. You'll add the newly introduced components from Bootstrap 4 in your current application and see what’s changed from Bootstrap 3. This course takes you from zero to hero, leaving you with the know-how required to build your own real-world project.
