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

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.

Whether you've themed in Drupal 8 or not, expect to learn a thing or two that you can use in your day-to-day work.

We will talk about:

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