Bootstrap is a collection of tools which helps developers in creating responsive websites.
Most of today’s websites are not responsive, meaning that you can only access them via computers. Devices with small screen such as mobile phones and tablets cannot access these websites. This is why Jacob Thornton and Mark Otto developed bootstrap. With this tool, developers create websites with amazing features and these can be accessed via devices of any screen size. Responsiveness is one of the emerging issues in web development, and this is the reason why you should consider learning bootstrap.
