    This would probably be interesting to me if i knew what bootstrap meant and what they did. Google time!

    • They're like frameworks that help you develop sites, lots of start you need before you start to build, css, 'blank' pages, etc.mikotondria31/2

    Bootstrap works really well with django. me happy.

    I feel these template frameworks has or is changing job requirements for front end designers/web designers.

    imo, the framework (i use foundation, btw) css reset is too much. so after working a couple of times with it, i ended up stripping down the reset to its bare essential and using my own reset especially for typography and form elements.

    Rows, spans and media queries are the ticket.

    im coming from a background of hacking my way into actionscript, hating the update to AS2 then being totally left behind by the "brilliant swap" to OOP AS3. The only way i was able to program well was in ActionScript1 when you could sneeze and code would work. i could drop shit into random movie clips embedded into ten deep movie clips and know exactly what I WAS DOING... now... im years behind the curve trying to do it "the right way".

    I hate programming now b/c im constantly learning someone elses proper way... i liked ruby b/c it was more elegantly sloppy like early actionscript. I know i can barely code with a team and i have no idea how to hand write a thing without having to source snippets needed... but damn, it used to be fun.

    • I feel you. I invested a good chunk of time in as3, and actually quite enjoyed it, until I saw the writing was on the wall.mikotondria31/3
      Now it's all about being device and platform agnostic. Make it look good on big and small, css, typog, seo and css. Sigh.mikotondria32/3
      oh for tellTarget, etc. :)mikotondria33/3

    Any kind of project/library/framework that can do part of the code for me and not in an ugly "dreamweaver" style of shit code that you never really wanna use, im way behind it. The problem is there is just so many new things in the HTML5/Jquery/CSS/etc world i can never decide what to spend time focusing on.

    • Are you in front end or back end? or both? It would depend. me personally. bootstrap and django have been nice combo working with python language.yurimon1/4
      working with python program language. I am a beginner in trying to update. paradigm shifted..yurimon2/4
      its always going to change. html5, jquery, java css are in demand for front end. especially if you drop the UX designer in the conversation.yurimon3/4

    ^ it's the system that makes it look like bootstrap. it's a codified system of menus, layout patterns, and widgets that, while they can be restyled, the framework underneath it all is the same, so they all end up looking a bit like bootstrap.

    I think it is awesome for APP/UI stuff, where you really strive for consistency in form and behaviour throughout the app, and in the ecosystem of similar products. For more 'creative' design, while it saves you time, it also boxes you into a corner. IE: something like this: http://www.microtyp.org/ is probably not going to fall out of the bootstrap toolbox.

    I see the value in some cases, but I hate that many(all?) of these grid systems and frameworks violate the whole concept of separating presentation from markup.

    <div class="row">
    <div class="8u">content</div>
    <div class="4u">sidebar</div>
    </div>
    or
    <div class="4_col">content</div> etc. etc.

    To change the dimension of the content requires going back into markup.
