Elevating 960gs Theming in Drupal 7 with the Omega theme

45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



omega | theming | 960 | 960gs

This session will cover the advanced usages of bypushing theming & grid based layouts further with preprocess functionality in the theme layer. The Omega Theme is currently a leap ahead of any other base theme in Drupal 7, and is continuing to expand new features that will revolutionize theming in D7.

This session will be a combination of concepts & information from presentations I've given on and the Omega theme at Drupalcon Paris, DrupalCamp Montreal, DrupalCon San Fransisco and Drupal Design Camp Boston - 2010.

However, this session is COMPLETELY updated with Drupal 7 code, tons of new features, a radically enhanced interface for the theme settings provided by the Omega theme in Drupal 7, and much more!!
