Discussion on: Learning Bootstrap in 2020. Is it worth it?

@pachicodes bootstrap as probably already mentioned starts losing ground because css/css3 has improved over the years and does most of the things that were difficult and people had learned to rely on bootstrap for.

So if you know enough css/css3 you really don't need to learn it, but perhaps testing it before a job interview or just to understand some of the decisions made will not hurt either.

To be fair there will always be a need to use bootstrap or any other opinionated css framework to style something fast for a quick demo or an MVP but I would not choose it for a client's work in year 2020 because bootstrap based website you need to go to extra lengths to make them look unique and "non-bootstrappy".
