Jump Start Bootstrap
Bootstrap to the rescue. Bootstrap is a front end framework that lets you design nice looking web pages where you just have to focus on the content, i.e. HTML and not the design CSS. Furthermore is the framework designed to produce a responsive web design such that the layout of your website changes according to the device that is used to access the website. After a thorough discussion of the grid system that is used to ensure responsiveness the book moves on and explores most of the HTML components (think buttons, menus etc) exposed by Bootstrap. The book finished off with a introduction on how to customize the Bootstrap style-sheets to make your site look more unique that obtainable through the standard style-sheets.
Jump Start Bootstrap is a quick and easy read and a great introduction to Responsive Web Design for back-end developers and is definitely recommendable. All the code used in the book is available for download so one can experiment with the examples.
