Step By Step Bootstrap 3 (2014)
One of the big challenges in web development is maintaining the site’s compatibility across devices and their various display sizes, from desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones. The last thing we want is to have a website that looks good on a desktop but is painful to navigate on a small display, or looks great on a small screen but appears oddly tiny in the center of a large screen.Ideally the site should have the ability to automatically reorganize itself to provide the optimal viewing experience, in accordance with the size of the display. In short, we want our website to be responsive. This is where Bootstrap 3 comes in handy.
