Level up your Themer

What level themer are you? Ever wanted to upgrade your skill set and take your theming beyond your comfort zone?

In this course we'll start you off at the ground floor of Drupal 7 Theming and work our way towards becoming theming super heroes. We will walk you through the basic concepts necessary to start on your custom theme adventure. We'll then teach you the tools you need including basic php to implement your vision. Throughout the day we will demonstrate common pitfalls and how to work your way through them. You'll leave day 1 feeling empowered with new found abilities to control layout and add custom functionality via the theme. You'll walk away with a theme built from scratch and learn how to use a foundation provided by thousands of other of Drupal themers.

Course Prerequisites

No knowledge of PHP is required, but a willingness to learn and elementary understanding of programming languages is a necessity. Proficiency in CSS and HTML are required for theming, but only an understanding is required for this workshop. Experience with Drupal configuration and use of contributed modules/themes is helpful for understanding the concepts of theme development.
