Bootstrap 4 Succinctly Released

The 8th book Iv’e written to date for Syncfusion’s ever popular Succinctly eBook series, and the third one one Bootstrap.

As Bootstrap continually gets better and more feature rich, then there is a need to keep up to date with the latest offerings it provides.

In this book, I take you on a just over 100 page tour of what’s new, and what it can now do (Hint: Flexbox rules!!!) and show you how to produce some interesting layouts.

Best part about it all is it’s free!!!

You can grab a copy here: Succinctly eBooks
