The Drupal 8 Theming Experience

A session at DrupalCamp Toronto 2016 (10th Anniversary)

Friday 15th April, 2016

11:00am to 12:00pm (EST)

Speaker: Scott Reeves

Theming has changed in Drupal 8. If you've themed in Drupal 7 some parts will feel familiar and others will probably feel completely new to you.

The technical details are already out there so instead we'll talk about the stories and reasons behind some of the changes and in doing so try to understand Drupal 8 theming better as a whole and learn to work with the system rather than against it.

We will talk about:

  • How small groups of people that care can make big changes
  • Why making Drupal's theming experience better is important
  • How new tools can surprise you with new ideas

I will also talk about my experience so far as a provisional Drupal 8 core committer.
