Bootstrap Workshop

Learn one of the hottest front-end frameworks and incorporate it into your work tomorrow. Follow along and learn how to build a Bootstrap-based website from scratch, incorporating the responsive grid system, see the basic CSS in action, incorporate Javascript-based components, and customize CSS. Bootstrap, an open source front-end framework, is one of the most popular front-end frameworks for building responsive websites. In this workshop, Tim Hykes will demonstrate how to use Bootstrap as a foundation in your next web design project.

The workshop is from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Lunch is included! Members of AIGA will save upto 50% or more on this workshop. Join today to save!

Learning Objectives

  • Downloading Bootstrap and incorporating it into an HTML document
  • Working with the Bootstrap responsive grid system
  • Exploring Bootstrap’s core CSS, overriding this CSS using standard CSS techniques
  • Incorporating Bootstrap’s image formatting elements and icons
  • Creating and styling fully responsive interactive menus with Bootstrap, including dropdown menus
  • Incorporating jQuery plugins with Bootstrap, including thumbnails, modal windows, and tabs


Students should have a solid understanding of hand-coded HTML5. Some background in Sass, CSS, and JavaScript/jQuery is nice, but not required.

Workshop Instructions

We will be building a simple 1 page portfolio site. While I'll be showing you some customization options, this site models Bootstrap's behavior and styling right out of the box.

You are welcome to attend the workshop and watch without coding. However, to actively participate in this workshop, you will need:

  1. Laptop/notebook configured with an editor for HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I will be using SublimeText 2, which can be downloaded for Mac or PC. However, you can use any editor you're comfortable using.
  2. Finally, you'll need the correct set of files for the workshop. All participants will receive an email with the correct files before the class.
