bootstrapbase and the clean theme are used in Moodle core since version 2.5. It is build on Bootstrap version 2.3.2. David Scotson and Bas Brands have been working on a new version of theBootstrap 3 theme for Moodle. In this hackfest session we have demonstrated how to use the Bootstrap 3 theme and the new features and issues we have.
There are already quite a few organisations that have adopted Bootstrap 3 as its base theme or have created modified version. We invite everybody to share your experiences / code or bugs you might have found.

Moodle’s profiling tool
When your software is too slow, you need measurements to tell you which are the slow bits. Tools that do that are called profilers. One of the better profiling tools for PHP is called XHProf. The good news is that it has already been integrated into Moodle, and there is documentation about getting it working. Basically, you just need to install a PHP extension and turn on some options under Admin -> Development -> Profiling.
