Description

What you’ll learn

  • Understand what Drupal 8 themes are
  • working with template files
  • Change any markup of a Drupal 8 website
  • Add css and javascript files to it
  • understanding the preprocess functions in Drupal 8
  • Understand the core concepts of the Twig templating language
  • create a Drupal 8 theme

Drupal 8 is out and from now on – every new Drupal website should be using the latest version of this wonderful Content Management Framework.

That means that we should learn to change the front-end of our Drupal 8 system – the way we need it. 

There are two main things that are changing the game in the Drupal 8 theming
– Drupal 8 is built on top of Symfony framework
– There are lessons learned from Drupal 7
that means that now the theming of a Drupal website is a bit different – everything is much more structured (almost all the markup is in template files), the templates are using Twig and everywhere one has to deal with code – one finds objects and classes.

In the end – it is not as scary as it looks like – simply everything evolved into something much better, much simpler and elegant, something that is not applicable only in the context of Drupal and that is following general web-development best practices.

In this course I tried to explain the general topics the shortest and the clearest way possible as afterwards I tried to illustrate everything with some simple examples. My opinion is that when you see some simple example working and when you try it by yourself – you already have the tools to investigate further and find exactly what you need to be done.

I’ve been doing drupal-development and theming for many years now – so I know what exactly are the topics that are needed the most – I tried to include all of those and in the end I wrapped all that was learned in an example website that we will convert together form a static html-css version into a working Drupal 8 theme.

Lets conquer together the Drupal 8 theming layer!

  • newbies to Drupal 8 that want to get started with Theming
  • Drupal 7 developers and/or people with any Drupal experience that want to learn how the theming in Drupal 8 is being done

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
