Using Jquery and Bootstrap to Build Websites

Jeff Jirsa

Bolingbrook, Fountaindale Library, Meeting Room A link to this same meeting


Building websites from scratch can be complex; writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript into a responsive (and bug-free?) website can be time-consuming. Using JavaScript libraries like jQuery and Bootstrap, a JavaScript/CSS based front-end framework, will turn you into a one person web designer.

As usual we will be having a "Meeting After the Meeting" for talk and drinks, and we are planning it to probably happen at the Rock Bottom restaurant in the Bolingbrook Promenade mall. The link goes to the restaurant's Bolingbrook website, but if you want a direct link to a map for directions use this link.
