Unfortunately, I am unable to attend tomorrows meeting. I’m really interested in hearing what people are using for themes, so hopefully this can be an ongoing conversation – especially as folks move into Drupal 8.

I have used Bootstrap before and it has lots of nice add-ons so that you can get something styled fairly quickly, but you also run into the issue of having to override existing styles if you don’t want to use what Bootstrap gives you. I have since started using Zen with sass and compass and most recently using the newest version of Zen with sass and gulp (Drupal 7). It's still in alpha for Drupal 8. Bootstrap was the first one out of the gate to offer a Drupal 8 version that was beyond a development version, which is why there are so many downloads. Others could catch up. Hopefully Zen will.
