Component Based Site Building Techniques


Day: Friday

Time: 1:00 p.m.

Room: Code Koalas - Room 303

This talk will walk through site building and theming options for building component based Drupal sites. We'll make use of modules like Bricks, Layout API, and Paragraphs as well as talk through some best practice and "learning experiences" to avoid. We'll look at pros and cons of different approaches like Bricks and Paragraphs and see how these tools can be combined to provide content managers a rich editing experience and at the same time making components easy to theme and compose.

We'll be sticking to techniques that only require basic site building and theming skills showing how just about anyone can build a highly customized Drupal site.

Slides from the presentation can be found here.
