An overview of theming in Drupal 7, focusing on front end development. Presented by Ryan Thomas (http://www.meetup.com/cleveland-drupal/members/13423227/).
We'll take a comprehensive look at Drupal theming by building a simple custom theme -- to understand the files and code that make up the theme, and the overrides Drupal provides to change any markup on your site.
Once we have an understanding of how a theme is built we'll look at some of the more popular base themes and the head-starts they offer.
And we'll briefly discuss issues around designing for different device sizes and touch devices.
Learn to wield ultimate control over how your site is presented to the world!
We will begin the meetup with lightning talks and site showcases, (no Learn Sprint.)
This is a chance for you to do a brief presentation (~5-10 minutes) on a topic of your choice, or to show a site you've been working on. We'll allot time for 5 of these and try to keep them to about 10 minutes each.
