I'm really glad you watched this course. Upgrading an old site to the new version of Bootstrap can be a little bit frustrating, so I hope that this course helped you learn some of the potential pitfalls. If you love Bootstrap, there's a lot of awesome resources you can find on the web. One of my favorites is the Bootstrap Showcase, at lovebootstrap.com. I like this because, although a lot of Bootstrap sites look very similar, it shows you a lot of what you can do to make them look completely different. Another cool website is Bootswatch. This is a theme library for Bootstrap where you can find a lot of different styles that you can use in you Bootstrap layouts.
If you want to play around with Bootstrap features, Bootply is a great site. What you can do here is play around with different parts of Bootstrap as if you were in a JS bin or code pen. This is cool because you can test new features of Bootstrap in different versions. Now I also like this project called Jetstrap. This allows you to create Bootstrap web sites without any coding so it's sort of like a layout tool or a prototyping tool that uses Bootstrap and exports as Bootstrap. Finally, you can go to Bootsnipp at bootsnipp.com and check out a lot of little HTML snippets that you can use in your Bootstrap projects.
I also like the Resources section of this web site. It gives you links to a lot of other projects on the web that use Bootstrap as a base. If you like the example web site that you saw in this course, you may want to check out my other Bootstrap course for advanced users, Advanced Bootstrap Workflow and Process. It might not yet be on the lynda.com library, but it should publish soon after you see this course. The best way to find out if it's been published is to go to lynda.com/rayvillalobos. The course covers an advanced workflow for working with Bootstrap 3 web sites.
Includes working with Git, Heroku, and LESS files. Once again, thank you for watching this course.
