New Pluralsight Course Covering Bootstrap

Monday, February 11, 2013

I have a new set of videos on Pluralsight covering the Twitter Bootstrap framework.

Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework for faster and easier web development. In this course we'll see how to use Bootstrap's CSS and JavaScript to turn plain HTML into navigational menus, picture carousels, split buttons, alerts, modal dialogs, and more.

Twitter Bootstrap Videos

If there is enough interest, I was thinking of a future set of videos showing how to use Bootstrap's LESS files with a server framework like ASP.NET MVC.

As a Pluralsight subscriber I will be watching your course in the very near future. Also, put me down as one of those interested in learning to Bootstrap an MVC application.

I recently took the time to figure out how to get my MVC4 site to work with the Bootstrap LESS files along with the LESS files that come with a Bootswatch.com theme. I'm using the build-time LESS compiler that comes with WebEssentials rather than compiling it at run-time. I am watching your Bootstrap course on Pluralsight now and can say, not only is it very clear and helpful, I wish I had something like this when I was figuring out how to get the LESS files to work. I'm sure it would have gone much faster. I definitely vote for the course!

Watched the videos, it was a thorough overview. As the title suggests, they are an introduction, so anyone familiar with Bootstrap should probably cherry-pick the sections that look interesting. For a newcomer, this is bread and butter content. I would also like to see how you tie this in with something like ASP.NET MVC.

I recently experimented with extending Bootstrap with LESS. Read more here : http://blog.appliedis.com/2013/02/04/bootstrap-with-less/

I'm working my way through the videos, onto the last one now. This is great content for those of us who are not css gurus. Scott, I'm expressing my interest in a set of videos showing how to use Bootstrap's LESS files with ASP.NET MVC :-)

At my day job, I've used bootstrap with Less on a couple of internal intranet MVC sites and the odds are really good that we'll do the same thing on the next public facing project we have.

Scott, You absolutely have to keep going with this. There is a desperate need within the .NET development community to be able to accurately navigate the plethora of open source libraries and frameworks out there. CSS and web design is one area that developers tend to need a lot of help with, so please keep your quality training coming and put me down as an interested party for the next Bootstrap course.

Watched your video and it convinced me to use Bootstrap for our new project. +1 on the Bootstrap + MVC4 video proposal!

+1 on the Bootstrap + MVC 4 course.

Just started watching the course this morning - love the (I assume) Swordfish-inspired Quick Styles After Dark. This is what coding is like inside my head! Think the LESS tutorial would be very interesting; we're making use of LESS in our current MVC 4 project (ably assisted by Cassette and the Web Essentials plug-in). By the way - are there any plans for a jQuery UI Bootstrap course do you know? We're giving serious thought to making use of this in our project as it seems to combine the CSS glory of Bootstrap with the widget functionality of jQuery UI. And we need both! http://addyosmani.github.com/jquery-ui-bootstrap/

@John: I don't think there are current plans for a course like that. You could add that here: http://support.pluralsight.com/forums/127919-new-course-suggestions
