Theming in Drupal 8 is easier and more flexible than ever before! There are a huge number of new and enhanced features included, with more being added all the time. Tools and capabilities you will want to use whether you’re sprucing up an existing site or building one from scratch. Come learn about the new theme architecture, templating language, and how well it all integrates with modern web design and development trends. You’ll come away with your own simple theme that showcases all of the learnings from throughout the day.

Course learning objectives
Some of the Drupal 8 features we’ll cover in this session are:
The new mobile-first approach
Out-of-the-box responsive themes (admin too!)
Twig, the new easy, secure templating language
Pattern libraries and component-based design system integration
New, extensive multilingual features
Discuss layout and theming options with modules like Fences, Display Suite, and Panels
New layout features coming in core
Please note that the theme you create is to demonstrate concepts and techniques. It is not intended that you leave with a complete production-ready theme.
Drupalists new to theming (Learners), and HTML and CSS developers new to Drupal (Newcomers), and Drupal themers new to Drupal 8.
In order to get the most out of this course you should have prior experience with development and site building with Drupal 7 or 8. At minimum, you should have non-Drupal frontend development experience.
