Drupal Meetup: Twig and the New Theme Layer in Drupal 8

Joel Pittet has been working in the design industry for 12 years as a web developer and designer. Joel has recently dedicated his time to working on Drupal 8's core Twig implementation. You can find him floating around on IRC or Drupal.org as joelpittet.

Drupal 8 will have a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simplified theme layer (we hope). We'll show you the new template syntax (don't worry, it's easy) and walk through some of the major problems in Drupal 7 that have either already been solved in Drupal 8, or that we are still working hard on improving.

Things we're currently improving include:

• Syntax

• Consistency

• Complexity

• Redundancy

• Security

Learn about all the changes in the Drupal 8 theme layer, and find out how you can get involved. We want Drupal 8 to be easy for theme developers and people new to Drupal, and also make more sense to the pros.

We still need your help, come learn what we're working on and how to get involved!

Lightning Talks

Attendees are invited to share their experience by giving a 2 to 4 minute presentation on any topic of interest to the Drupal community. If you want to use a laptop to show a website or control panel please be sure you have the necessary cable (vga) to connect to an overhead projector.

    It was fascinating to see how you all shared ideas and asked questions in such an atmosphere of community and openness. I came away learning more then I did coming in. Great presentation!

    From what I saw, I am really going to like Twig. I wish I could've stayed longer.
