Curious as to which one I should learn first Bootstrap or Foundation.

I've been researching over these two great frameworks the past couple of days. I completed my first site using framework, it was a little tough to learn. The site I made is nothing special, no floating pictures, or crazy nav bars. Now trying to find videos on YouTube about Foundation 5 is pretty tough to find but, Bootstrap has tons of great resources, and how to guides. My question is should I just grit my teeth and keep practicing with Foundation, or should I try to master bootstrap? Also what one do you feel is the best why, or why not?

Thanks for the help.

They're both pretty similar so it doesn't really matter which you learn first although Bootstrap is a bit simpler. I prefer Foundation 5 because it has some more advanced features than bootstrap such as off-canvas nav etc. The frameworks basics course http://teamtreehouse.com/library/framework-basics is worth checking out. Hope that helps.
