What I Learnt Building Twitter Bootstrap

Jacob Thornton:

Today Bootstrap is really fucking popular. However, what people often don’t realize is that despite its popularity, and despite it being a “Twitter” project, it isn’t actually maintained by a team at Twitter (nor was it ever).

Bootstrap is (and has always been) maintained by two nerds who like to write code together. Just two nerds.

What’s more, this wasn’t something we did in the office – there was no “Bootstrap team” – no 20% time – just Mark and I hacking in our free time. And this is significant, because what building Bootstrap has taught me more than anything else, is that’s all I really care about.

Writing code with the homies.

These are the good times. Always will be, always have been.
