Hi there, I'm totally new with BEM, its concepts seem to be very useful, I actually want to start using them, but I also want to combine them with a library like Bootstrap, which we use for many of our products. Does anyone here have experience doing that?

One day bootstrap will be refactored using BEM. I believe.

.my-awesome-bem-flavored-button { // absolute independent block
    @extend .btn; // based on some useful stuff from Bootstrap.
