Bootstrap is an open-source Javascript framework developed by the team at Twitter. It is a combination of HTML, CSS, and Javascript code designed to help build user interface components. Bootstrap was also programmed to support both HTML5 and CSS3.

Important! Bootstrap is a CSS and Javascript framework that is used within your HTML. Bootstrap provides more advanced functionality to your web site. Generally, if you are not a developer you do not need to worry about bootstrap.
