Wireframe

In this project, you’ll build a wireframe mobile application using Bootstrap, your HTML and CSS skills and your graphic design knowledge from previous semesters.

Wireframe

webappA wireframe is a prototype for a software application. It looks, and even feels, a lot like what the finished app would look and feel like, but it just might not actually work. Wireframes are much faster to build than actual mobile apps, and provide developers with the ability to gain important feedback early on before pouring resources into building the “real” thing.

In a team of 2-3 develop a concept for a mobile app and build a wireframe version of it. Use the code below to help you get started.

Lesson 6: Navigation

In this lesson, we’ll examine how to create responsive  navigational components on your website.

Navigation Components

Present Your Tutorial

In a small group, create a short Google Slide presentation to introduce the new features that you learned about in your video. Also include a CodePen.io example.

Lesson 4: CSS Classes

In the following lessons, you’ll dive deeper into some of the lesser known CSS classes that come baked into Bootstrap.

Basic Bootstrap CSS Classes

Presentation

In a small group, create a Google Slide presentation to share what you learn based on the assigned video tutorial that your group watches. Be prepared to present what you learn to the class.

Lesson 3: Rows and Columns

In this lesson we’ll examine another key component of Bootstrap’s grid system.

Rows and Containers

Rows must always go inside a container and should include columns. View the following two videos on Lynda.com to better understand how these two components work.

Styles Conference

Let’s take what we’ve learned so far about using containers, rows, and columns and apply it to our last project – The Styles Conference homepage.

Do your best to rebuild the styles conference homepage by leveraging Bootstrap’s grid system to convert the page into a responsive layout. Don’t worry if the widths, fonts, and colors aren’t precise at this point. Simply capture the spirit of the page using Bootstrap.

Lesson 2: Containers

In this lesson, we’ll examine Bootstrap’s grid system to better understand how to position elements on a page.

Containers

We’ll look at both fluid and fixed with containers. To understand fixed width containers, it’s important to understand breakpoints. Refer to the image below:
