Announcing a new Meetup for The Austin Drupal Meetup Group!

What: Drupal Theming - An Introduction

When: June 24,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Elegant Functionality Requires More Than Hacking Bluemarine

One of the greatest benefits of a Content Management System like Drupal, is the ability to separate the visual presentation (Theme) layer from the site logic. This is accomplished by placing your theme files in site/all/themes. The rest is up to your abilities to write & edit PHP template files, use hooks, and customize CSS for use in customizing the presentation of your site. The callbacks may seem a bit labyrinthine, but by making a sub-theme you can get well on your way.

Sound tough? It is not.

Come out next Month to learn how to get started! Lauren N. Roth will be giving short presentation to get you going and recommends bringing a Localhost installation on your own computer. Even if you are an experienced Drupal developer, write modules, and have been pimping out sites for years, let's get together, discuss best practices and demystify the design process. If you write modules, some themer needs to handle your output after they enable your module, so it would be fantastic to build a little elegance into the module itself!

Come out, ask questions, share your experiences and help others make some amazing Drupal sites!
