Training Spotlight: Drupal 8 Theming

With the Drupal 8 release just around the corner, now is the time to learn about the major changes it will bring for themers. For example, TWIG will be the default theme engine and thus you need to be familiar with its templating syntax. Other new hot features worth exploring are YAML config files, breakpoints, library management etc. Join this class and learn all you need to know to create your own theme in Drupal 8.

In order to understand how the theming layer works, we will build our own theme on a fresh Drupal 8 installation. Students will be able to practice and test every aspect of theming: how to declare a theme, add CSS/JS, load libraries, understand configuration exportables, leverage the new CSS architecture, and more.

This course will alternate between lecture and hands-on training, giving students ample time to test their own theme and to get all their questions answered over the course of the day.
