Bootstrap is a fabulous frontend framework that helps create beautiful and responsive web pages. Microsoft incorporated Bootstrap into ASP.NET MVC 5 and is enabled in the new project templates. This session explores the fundamentals of Bootstrap including the powerful grid system and its mobile-first responsive design approach. You will see how to incorporate Bootstrap features into the MVC portions of your application. For example, you'll discover ways to integrate Bootstrap form features into the Html.BeginForm extension methods and learn how to create elegant input and button elements within the form. You will discover other interesting parts of the ecosystem, like typography, and explore some of the custom components available, like the Dashboard. When we are done, you'll see how simple it is to make a modern, clean, mobile friendly website.
