Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Bootstrap 2: Adding Interactivity to Your Site.
Exercise files for this course have been made available to all lynda.com subscribers. Simply download the exercise files to your computer and place them on the desktop for ease of access. These exercise files are organized by chapter number. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video, you'll see a yellow overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and the name of the exercise file. I recommend you watch each chapter of this course from start to finish. In most cases, you won't have a working product until you've completed all of the steps.
In the folder associated with the first video of each chapter, you will find any images required to complete the chapter. You'll also find the first HTML file of the chapter. You can use this HTML file throughout the chapter, but if you get lost, I've given you the starting-state HTML for each video as well. Copy these HTML files from the exercise files folder to your working directory. For me this is the Bootstrap folder here on my desktop. You'll be creating this Bootstrap folder in the first few videos as you download Bootstrap and start working with it.
When I've given you some images to use, you should drag these images to the IMG folder inside of your Bootstrap folder on the desktop. Working with the exercise files can add great value to the training. However, if you don't have access to the exercise files, you can still follow along with the videos, often using your own files and have a fulfilling learning experience.
