Training 4: Drupal 8 Theming Fundamentals

The Drupal 8 theme layer provides us with a structured space for the sacred files that enhance the visual presentation of our projects.

We will go over some introduction to the world of themes, walk through the process of creating our own custom themes, and explore what Drupal 8 has to offer to aid us with this along the way.

This session is great for developers new to Drupal 8 looking to dive into theming, intermediate developers who would like to solidify their knowledge of the theme layer, and anyone looking to understand what goes into visual side of development on the front end of Drupal 8.
