After many years of development, Bootstrap had an official 4.0 release on January 18th, 2018. Bootstrap has been a popular front-end framework for several years and the release of the new version is really exciting! This post outlines a few of the differences between Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 4.
We're excited to launch our new Bootstrap 4 course this March in Montreal! Bootstrap is a popular front-end framework that provides a base of CSS and JS for your website's look and feel. It makes it easy to create responsive layouts and grids. It also has components you can use to build out responsive navigation, forms, modals, tool tips, buttons, and other common website elements. It's often used as a starting point for Drupal and WordPress themes.

Many mobile app developers are using it and the approval rate among web designers is also rising, mostly because of its simplicity and the influence of mobile apps on responsive design.
What are SASS and Compass and why and how would I use them? Don't worry, we'll guide you through the process of using SASS with your Drupal 8 theme.
If you're a Drupal developer who's on the fence about trying Drupal 8, we hope this post will push you to go for it... or inform you that it's better to wait, if your project depends on a module that's not there yet.
NOTE: This post is based on the current status of all mentioned projects as of March 30th, 2016.
The Views module is in core now, and it's stable and ready to go! This is very different than previously, when Drupal 7's adoption was blocked for many months due to unavailability of Views.
