Framework Basics Overview2:01 with Guil Hernandez
This video provides a quick overview of the Framework Basics course.
[Framework Basics - with Guil Hernandez - Introduction to Front-End Frameworks]
When building a website or app, do you ever find yourself wondering exactly where or how to get started?
Or have you ever had a great idea for a website and you want to quickly get going on a working on a prototype
instead of spending valuable time designing and coding everything from scratch.
Well sometimes the hardest part is knowing where or how to start. So we're here to help you with that.
I'm Guil and welcome to Framework Basics, where we'll learn all about some of the top, front-end basics used
for building websites and applications.
We'll see how frameworks can quickly get us started on our idea and streamline our workflow.
In this series we'll take an in-depth look at 2 of the most widely used frameworks in the industry—Twitter Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation.
We'll first study the benefits and strengths of each framework, then dive into all the features and components that make it all work.
After that we'll put everything we've learned about each framework into practice by building a simple marketing website for Ribbit—
the neat, self-destructing message app for IOS and Android built by our teacher, Ben.
We'll use many of the common features of each framework to bring the site to life.
So if you still need to learn any of these or simply refresh some of those front-end skills,
go through some of the lessons or projects on CSS and HTML first, then meet me back here in Framework Basics.
By the end of this course you'll have all the tools necessary to build a website or app of any size using a front-end framework.
You'll also understand how frameworks can be useful when used properly and which one might be best suited for your project.
To get started, all you'll need is a text editor and a browser.
And I already have all the project files set up for you, so we'll be able to start coding right away.
You can find the link to the files in the "download" section of each video.
