A Bulletproof Approach to Theming

Presented by

Theming is not rocket science, but it can be difficult being a themer on Drupal projects that are larger in scale. Often you find yourself being pulled into projects at an especially unfortunate moment, or maybe you’re the lucky one that gets included from the start, but without a clear overview as to what the IA, design or basic functionality looks like.

Presented by

As designers/themers we've always been pressed with dealing with screen sizes. I remember the days when we had to worry how many of our site visitors used a 800x600 screen resolution and when we could stop accommodating those users, much like we have with IE6 users today.

Intended audience

This session, while labeled intermediate will be suitable for Beginner to Advanced Drupal themers/designers to gain knowledge on responsive/adaptive HTML5 designs and layouts targeted for multiple devices in a growing mobile market.

Questions answered by this session

How can I build for mobile devices easily?

How can I use a single site/theme/framework for ALL devices?

How can I extend Omega with my own grid sizes/columns?

How can I conditionally use alternate layouts in the same theme?
