Prepare yourself with the skills you'll need to hit the ground running as a Drupal 8 themer. This training will be a hands-on, an interactive workshop where we will build a Drupal 8 theme from the ground up using Drupal 8's new template engine, Twig. We’ll dive into many of its features.
We will recommend best practices around template logic, determining what should be themeable output in the first place, leveraging theme suggestions and reusable theme components, overriding and extending templates, and more. We will also talk about why themers should be excited for the tools that contrib can provide in Drupal 8.
This workshop is intended for intermediate-level Drupal themers and front-end developers. Knowing the basics of git will be helpful but is not necessary. No PHP knowledge is necessary but a laptop is required.
Twig is being improved in Drupal 8 Core @ http://drupaltwig.org/ and you are all welcome to join in and help make Drupal 8 theming awesome!
You should have the latest alpha of Drupal 8 installed locally prior to this training.
