Learn how to build a responsive Drupal theme and customize the look of your Drupal site.

About this event

The look and feel of a Drupal site is remarkably flexible. With the Drupal theme system, you have the ability to change the HTML output of your site, and implement a design by adding CSS and Javascript.

In this course, you'll learn how to build a responsive Drupal theme to customize the look of your Drupal site. We’ll create a theme based on Drupal core, and another using a front-end framework. Learn how to create layouts, customize Twig templates, and best practices for organizing your theme.
