You mean the one with all the vague terms explained very generally? Or the one that walks you through a single example?
So you can shoehorn your unique project into a common, mediocre design that hundreds of others are using?
But didn't you say you weren't a designer? Oh. So you'll probably just use Bootstrap like everyone else?
