#100DaysOfWeb in Python Transcripts
Chapter: Days 13-16: CSS Layout and Design
Lecture: Your-turn: Day 4
0:00 On day four, it's basically a fun little research project.
0:02 So we didn't get a chance to talk about Bootstrap
0:05 even though I mentioned it several times.
0:06 It turns out to be a really important front end framework
0:08 in my mind, as a stand in for all the choices you could have
0:12 of various front end frameworks.
0:14 So I'd like you to just take a little bit of time
0:17 and imagine something, some product or service, or something
0:20 that a company you work for is creating, and you would like
0:22 to have a cool website for it.
0:25 So there's a site called WrapBootstrap, and the idea is
0:28 I want you to go over here and look through the themes
0:32 and see what's out here, and find three themes that you
0:35 would be able to start from for building your site.
0:38 So imagine, I'm over here, and these are always
0:42 really impressive, and these.
0:46 You can download it and play with it, and have all these
0:48 cool little live animations and so on.
0:50 Anyway, go through, maybe use the categories, or just
0:54 click through the popular ones and find three
0:56 that you might want to use.
0:58 And the idea is, you come over here and pay $39
1:01 or come over here and pay 15, and have access to a
1:05 professional looking website immediately, before
1:09 you spend hours and hours laying around trying to get
1:12 something to look like you want.
1:14 Much much more productive to start from one of these
1:16 and then tweak it, put in the live elements that we're going
1:20 to talk about when we get to server side code
1:22 things like that.
1:23 For day four, just do a little bit of experimenting
1:26 go look through the themes section, find a couple
1:28 that might match up with this imaginary idea
1:30 that I asked you to come up with.
1:32 All right, that's it.
1:33 Hopefully you enjoyed the web design section
1:36 and you feel much more confident and comfortable with CSS.
