Code less and configure more in order to have more sustainable websites. I want to play around with the modules Views, Page Manager, Flags and Rules results could be:
list related content - tailored behaviour on your custom pages - Menu tabs, default menu tabs and local actions in your Views and Page manager configuration -
This is not about making a nice theme but how to gain control over the output of the content. Using Display Suite and Drupal 7 you will see a nice and clean way how to work with the DS templates for designing the content and also use them with views. - This will be shown based on the 960gs.
The Design Initiative's goals are to build a new theme for Drupal 8 and to get more designers involved with Drupal. In this session we're going to discuss the initiative's plans and how designers and themers can get involved.
To follow up the session about the Design in Drupal8 its time to get down & dirty, so grap you pen, labtop & good ideas and dig down with the rest of the camp and lets make Drupal 8 a design landmark (or just a bit better).

Don't design only a great web site. Unsuspecting clients will be exposed to the Drupal administrative interface as well. We'll look at the main user experiences you want to design for. Hint: bring your favorite admin theme and node/add page.

Tired of building every Drupal sites from scratch and copying all you files over FTP? In this session we take a look at Aegir - Drupal hosting system and Drush - command line shell for Drupal. Together they can help us speed up the development time, make the upgrades child's play and have a visual overview of our Drupal projects, only with a cost of leveling up in geek skills.
Do more with less in Drupal. LESS extends CSS with dynamic behavior such as variables and functions. The aim is less code, that easier and faster to maintain and reuse. The best part: If you know CSS, you already know LESS – and it works great with Drupal!
Wouldn’t it rock to write shorter CSS rules? prevent spaghetti selectors? re-use CSS styles without copy and pasting? and never have to type another vendor prefix again? -o-hell-yeah: 1; Sass turns CSS’s power to 11, with a handful of simple concepts.
Where does all the markup come from and how can I change it? At a certain point all CSS magic won't be enough to achieve the desired results of your design. Let's get our magnifying glasses out and find out where the markup for Drupal7's building blocks and (contrib) modules is generated. Find out how we can modify it, make additions or reduce it to a level we find necessary for our project.
With Drupal 7 we received some new tools for theming. The Render Array the biggest of them, but frankly, it's kinda scary. The Render Array is a powerful tool with which you can achieve tasks which were very difficult in Drupal 6. Furthermore there are tools to help you leverage the power of the Render Array.

We do often hear how to do the theming right, but what happens, when you want to achieve something and not sure how to do it?
Is the approach you have taken the right one? Now learn from the monsters, who've done loads of evil stuff in the theming layer how not to do it!
Theming a site is NOT doing a grid, modifying the CSS & changing a bit of HTML Its a battleground where quick n dirty solutions will hunt you down in about 6 months, decisions that were made in the start process (and all forgot about) now is a problem.So how do we get around these problems, and create a kick ass theme, and look good in the process.
We're going to take a look under the hood of Drupal and take a look at the inner workings of the Theming API. This will give you the tools to even better do your theming. So, no chit-chat about what is beautiful, but getting dirty with PHP. No worries if you're not a PHP Hero, I'll be your PHP Hero this time and show you what you need to know.
Learn all the basic of Drupal Theming in the 3 session tour de theme from Swedens finest.
Using grids for creating web based design has grown immensly popular in recent years. In this session we take a brief look at what grid systems are, their historical background in architecture and print and then familiarise ourselves with the basic workings of the 960 grid system for CSS/HTML based design.
