    Hi Ricky, Could you explain which one is lighter than the other: Bootstrap or Foundation ?

    Both are great and I agree with Ricky. I more focus on back-end development so Bootstrap is the best option. I don't have to spend my time on design, just make sure it work as I wanted to. For front-end developer that really focus on design website, better go to Foundation. Fully customization with already basic set up for javascipt such as modal, dropdown, accordian. Everything has been set up, developer just need to put their own design less worry on javascript.

    I use Bootstrap alot and save my time on design phase since Bootstrap has alot of themes, template and snippet. I'm more focus on back-end development overthought I'm full-stack developer but front-end development is really consume my time alot during development and I don't like it.

    Both are great depends on your development purpose. If it is system website, Bootstrap is the best but if it portfolios, company profile, something that need fancy looking website, then go for Foundation. As simple as that.

    But if you love designing front-end as well as back-end, go for Foundation. Easy to customize than Bootstrap

    I started with Skeleton than I found Foundation ZURB and ever since I have not been able to jump into a different framework. I try to learn Bootstrap but I missed all the good features of Foundation. There is 2 unique feature in Foundation that for me are a no brainer. The ability of set the XY-Grid on the SCSS file instead of over use classes on the html file. You can use at your own like. and also with the ZURB template is like using PHP when it comes to update pages you just update one file and thats it specially the ability of using JSON data to update long list of text like menus, names address listing etc. Creating partials and layouts as guideline for the rest of the internal pages is awesome. Only problem is that it looks like folks at ZURB are not been in good communication there is a few bugs and they aren't fixing it. Hope they get back on track soon because it is a very useful Framework.

    Ricky do you think if we are going to work as a front-end developer Bootstrap is better or Foundation?

    I've used Foundation with SASS, then Foundation laid off most of their staff last year. I download Foundation using npm two months ago, and there was a host of warnings about things getting deprecated, the foundation github had a bunch of people showing errors and trying to get help, and no one was responding to them, their forum is riddled with spam, sometimes it takes too long to get a question answered in their forums, and the last thing is their slack channels are pretty dead. I decided to look into bootstrap on udemy and have found Bootstrap to be awesome. The community is huge and getting help is a breeze. The Bootstrap slack channel is active unlike foundation. Until Foundation can get the bugs worked out, I'll stick with bootstrap for now.

    Hey Ricky, great video and really on point. I have worked extensively with both frameworks and my take is very much the same. Bootstrap is great if you just want to use it the way it looks out of the box. Great for dev teams without a designer on board and need to make an app look good enough.

    Foundation really shines when you have a designer on board and especially for apps and sites that will have a strong visual brand. It is very easy and fast to customize if you have a design direction and frontend chops (yes, creating that design in css) and often is much faster than hand coding it yourself. Especially on larger sites with lots of patterns, or in a team environment. Very simple and small apps with very few patterns might be the exception.

    Great video, and I completely agree. We've used (and preferred) Foundation for years (ca. ZF 3) for precisely the reasons you cited. Bootstrap is like the WordPress of CSS frameworks, no offense to either, as both serve very useful purposes. In these modern days of flexbox, CSS grid & such, a couple of other frameworks (among others) worth checking out are Bulma and Tachyons.
