Hello everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am mostly a business tier developer that is now confronted with having to develop a UI for the front end of what might become a commercial app. The backend of the site is SQL server using some webforms
along with some MVC and SignalR populating pages built with jQuery ajax calls and jQery widgets along with both server side and client side generated gridviews. I need to move to a responsive framework, however have little experience working with any of them.
I need some direction on which framework is the best to use both on ease to learn along with staying current with technology. Any help would be3 appreciated.

Bootstrap is good UI framework to get started. You get lots of sample template pages which you can customize according to your requirements. The only difficulty being, when you need to really make a major change to a existing out of box item, it takes a
bit of effort to understand how it has been implemented and how you can update it without any major impact to other components. It may turn out to build those kind of components from scratch instead of updating it in those cases. But all things considered,
for us backend developers, using a UI framework such as bootstrap is really a great way to get started.
There are many other UI frameworks too, I found the following links useful,

Thanks for the response. I will start experimenting with Bootstrap. However, I am seeing more and more developers moving away from Bootstrap to other frameworks. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the topic to understand the pros and cons. Can
you shed some light on the issue?
