SFDUG - San Francisco Drupal Users group - Twig, and the new theme layer in D8

Let start to look at what is going on with Drupal 8.  This month we have Jen Lampton who will present on TWIG.

Drupal 8 has a new theme engine: Twig. Twig provides several advantages over PHPtemplate, our previous theme engine, including: Security, Performance (probably), and Ease of Use.

In this session We'll point out some of the problems we faced with PHPTemplate and Renderables, and show how these issues are being addressed through the move to Twig. There's still a lot to do, and some things we still haven't decided on yet, but we're definitely making progress.

Come see what template files will look like in Drupal 8, and learn how you can get involved in making a better Tomorrow for your favorite CMS.

I look forward to seeing you all on April 8th for this awesome presentation!

    My first meeting with this group. The amount of information packed into that talk was amazing. Good thing she talks fast.

    So glad Jen "volunteered" for this initiative, and I feel like the quality of theming and development is really improving in Drupal 8. Someone asked, (paraphrased) "what about those of us who make a living off of all these quirky intricacies in D6/7?" Will D8 put us out of business? No, we'll just be able to focus on providing increased theming & development value to our clients, IMO. Less time hammering on quirky bugs. Really looking forward to D8.

      OH, you thought I was presenting? How about "Raising a 7-month-old while running a Drupal dev shop" some day?
