Drupal 7 to 8 Theming: The Learning Curve After the Learning Curve
You’ve gotten familiar with Drupal 7 theming and are starting to feel comfortable with it, just in time for development to start shifting to Drupal 8. Or perhaps you’re new to Drupal theming and aren’t sure where to start. Either way, this session is for you! This workshop-style demonstration will focus on UI development from the ground up, discussing building a clean Drupal 8 theme / sub-theme. We will be going through:
The new theme file structure
Configuration and theme hooks
Basic Twig concepts
Debugging tools and techniques
General best practices, including how to weave accessibility best practices into your theme
After this presentation, you will be equipped with the tools that you need to dive into Drupal 8 theming head-first.
