At Syncfusion, we know that Bootstrap is an important tool
for many developers. Most of our web tools are compatible with Bootstrap, with
all but our Essential JS 2 platform featuring built-in support. This new update
will bring more functionality to developers, and we hope to continue being an
additional resource for anyone looking to make use of it. Currently, Succinctly series author Peter Shaw is
working on Bootstrap 4 Succinctly, to
be released later this year. This new e-book will help readers get up to speed
with the changes to Bootstrap. For those who can’t wait, Shaw’s earlier books, Twitter Bootstrap 3 Succinctly and Twitter Bootstrap Succinctly remain excellent entry points.
These e-books remain
great ways to start understanding Bootstrap.
