Drupal 8

Markup the Drupal 8 way

Drupal 8 uses Twig as its default templating engine. This has generated a lot of excitement but Twig isn't the only thing that has changed in the Drupal 8 Theme System - Twig has been a tool that has allowed us to make many other changes.

In this presentation I will give an overview of how markup should be printed in Drupal 8. I will also walk through some of the changes that have made outputting markup more complex and how to cope with them.

Topics in this session includes:

Drupal 8 Kickstart

Presenting the essentials a developer should understand to dive into a Drupal 8 site and see where and how to integrate their custom module in Drupal 8. 

The Drupal 8 Kickstart presentation will be enhanced by screensharing phpStorm showing Drupal 8 concepts in use in an actual new custom Drupal 8 module on a locally-installed demo Drupal 8 site.

Developers with Drupal 7 experience will find that the discipline and organization they have gained from developing to Drupal 7 will benefit them as that knowledge is expanded to include Drupal 8 concepts.
