Drupal 8: Frontend for Backenders

By Lauri Eskola Aug 6, 2014

This webinar has now ended. Please view the session recording below. 


Learn about some of the goodies that are possible in Drupal 8

Drupal 8 will ship with a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simpler theme layer. In this webinar, our speaker will show you some goodies from Twig and give you a walkthrough on how to get started with it.

He will also talk about the major problems that people were facing in working with Drupal 7 and what the community has done to make it better. This webinar will show - in both practical examples and on a broader scale - why Drupal 8 will make peace between backenders and frontenders.
