Why Bootstrap ?

There is big buzz on web about BootStrap now,  and I found that anybody can pick the concept of designing and can effectively design slick UI in no time with BootStrap. Take my words, I am seriously bad in designing, but I have sense of UI/UX very well and I delivered application with significantly improved user experience in no time with Bootstrap, so you guys can do it as well

While in my graduate program here in Texas, I undertook courses like HCF(Human Factors in Design) and UX, and each prototype I designed I was in love to see the reaction of customer and fellow mates on how UX touches people, I believe with Bootstrap, now I can continue to demonstrate the better UX

Nevertheless, BootStrap is kick start for people who do not have 'expertise' in designing world. I recommend few link that help me to design some beautiful application in less time that I have thought of, I would like share my learning and resource that helped and welcome other resources as well from the contributors and readers around the world
