Theming for Site Builders: Getting Started the Drupal Way

Do you enjoy building your Drupal site but dread the long and tedious theming process? You will be happy to learn that there are some site building techniques that could shave DAYS off of theming your sites. The trick is to figure out which modules support theming synergy.

This session goes into depth explaining many of the tricks I've learned from working on existing sites, brand new sites and horror stories told in training sessions. I'll share some of my favorite problems, favorite site-building solutions to those problems, and best practices for working solo or on a team.

Keeping in the spirit of site building, we will not be writing code — everything you learn will be from within the Drupal interface.
