Back when Bootstrap was Twitter Bootstrap and it had been downloaded a grand total of about 5,000 times, I wrote and published a book on how to develop using the Twitter Bootstrap framework. I sold a few copies and learned about using Bootstrap pretty well. Well enough to write around a 200-page book on it, at least.
Time went on and Twitter Bootstrap became Bootstrap and Mark Otto left Twitter, and took his framework with him and rebranded. I think he works at Github these days, but he and his partner still update and work on it a lot.
After a while, my book became slightly outdated, and keeping a sizeable technical book up to date wasn’t a priority. So I posted it on my old website, michaelmusgrove.com, for free. Which a popular move on my part. Then like a dummy, I took the whole site down.
Long, boring story short: I’m re-posting the Bootstrap Book here. I’m going to go back through and try to clean up what’s outdated and it should be a pretty good resource for people that are beginners through intermediate. It has a TON of great Bootstrap resources too, for the advanced crowd.
People send me things to include all the time, which I think is awesome and welcome it. If you’d like to contribute, just send me a message.
Here it is in .pdf form, unedited since final draft:
I’ll be updating & uploading as quickly as possible beyond this.
