About this event

Atomic and molecular design are great tools to ensure consistency in design language across a website. It can be hard for content editors to use elements from your design library unless Drupal is set up correctly.

This course gives front end developers the knowledge they need to build components in Drupal that empower content editors to create flexible, dynamic page designs that also make use of elements of the atomic design.
