An in depth look at the Javascript behind Bootstrap. Talk about the
history of the plugins, design decisions, how they’ve evolved, and
where they’re heading. Explore the impression of Bootstrap as a
glorified stylesheet and html template (and why this matters) as well
as the importance of collaboration and constant contact.

of some pretty nifty open source projects: Bootstrap, Ender,
Hogan.js… He studied literature in school, which means he has no
clue what he’s doing and is hyper critical of everything.
