HackLab: Learn to Build Websites with Twitter Bootstrap

****For students only****

Have you ever seen a beautiful website and wondered how it's coded? Do you think learning how to code is too much of a time investment for you? Join Philip Greenwald from CodeUndercover in this hands-on workshop where you'll learn Twitter Bootstrap, one of today's most popular front-end frameworks for web development. Whether you have no experience writing code or have a little knowledge of html, this workshop is for you.

We'll be learning how to use the Twitter Bootstrap code library to create beautiful front ends. Bootstrap is a combination of pre-written code written in languages called HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that allow you to write very little but get a whole lot.
