CSS Bootstrap 4 Basics (Retired) Getting to Know Bootstrap 4 Rapid Development with Bootstrap

"This course will be retired on October 17, 2017." Should I wait for the new release? Bonus: Foundation vs Bootstrap?

Hey guys,

I'm having some trouble deciding if I should invest my time in this Bootstrap 4 Basics Course since it's going to be retired in a couple weeks. I've had a few front-end developers recommend Foundation over Bootsrap and was wondering if anyone in the community could offer their opinion/preference. Back to the main question, should I hold off on this course until the updates are made? I'm currently working on the Web Design track and was considering finishing the last bits before going back to the Bootstrap section.(Hopefully updated by then.) Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Kyle,

There are are bonuses to both. I personally, favor bootstrap. I've worked with foundation for email templating and personally found it a pain. I also started with Bootstrap 3 and I am currently working on learning Bootstrap 4 since there are some differences but not that many. I personally, would say learn both to some degree and see which one you favor and go with that.
