About the Author
David Cochran serves as Associate Professor of Communication at Oklahoma Wesleyan University. He has taught web design since 2005. A passion for best practices induced him to avoid faulty shortcuts and hew toward web standards. When Twitter Bootstrap was first released in August 2011, he recognized in it a tool that would speed up development while supporting best practices. Thus, he began folding Bootstrap into his university courses, much to the benefit of his students. In 2012, David produced a Bootstrap 2.0 tutorial series for webdesign.tutsplus.com. He also published a short book about Bootstrap, "Bootstrap Web Development How-to", Packt Publishing.
In his spare time, David blogs about web design at aLittleCode.com and runs a small web development and consulting business, BitBrilliant.com.
