Drupal 8 Theming - Introduction

Date and Time: 
Thursday, October 22, 2015 -
9:00am to 4:30pm

Trainer: Chaz Chumley / Forum One

Audience: Drupal themers and front-end developers

Master Drupal 8’s new Twig templating engine to create fun and fast websites with simple steps to help you move from concept to completion.

Starting from the bottom up we will walk thru setting up and configuring a new Drupal 8 website. Navigate the Admin interface and learn how to work with core themes and create new custom block layouts. Taking a look at a real world project we will create a Twig theme that adopts best practices to implement CSS frameworks and JavaScript libraries. We will see just how quick and easy it is to create beautiful responsive Drupal 8 websites while avoiding some of the common mistakes many front-end developers run into.

If you consider yourself a front-end developer you will be right at home, but since no PHP knowledge will be necessary, anyone who can create an HTML website with basic HTML and CSS skills will be able to leave knowing how to create a Drupal 8 theme.

Prerequisites:

  • You should have the latest beta version of Drupal 8 installed locally prior to this training.
  • Have a version of MySQL installed with ability to do a database restore.
  • Understand how to work with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript libraries

All attendees will receive a digital copy of Chaz' upcoming book Drupal 8 Theming with Twig when it is published in January.
