One of the presentation frameworks that has garnered a large amount of attention recently is Bootstrap. Originally authored by two developers at Twitter, Bootstrap has become a separate product and has garnered a large following. Join us for an evening of discussion and demonstrations on this free and easy tool that makes page layout and some very impressive special effects a breeze for inexperienced and experienced users. If you wish, you can bring a laptop and try it yourself.

    It was a good intro to bootstrap thanks. As for security, that will primarily be handled by the server side framework you are using. Such as in php, python, etc. If you wanted to do front end security such as basic field validation, one would still need to build such validation with their own JavaScript code such as using jquery.

    Bootstrap is a html/css framework and is platform agnostic. It runs on top of any scripting language you want. You are responsible for your own security through what ever scripting platform you choose to use.

    Can you plan on addressing the question, does Bootstrap have security features comparable with server-side scripting languages? Or if it is limited to client-side scripting, how does it ensure security?
