Theming the Enterprise

Day:  Thursday, 26. august 2010
Time:  10:00-10:50
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Last winter, when the recession hit my corner of the web world, I went and got myself one of those full-time jobs. Suddenly instead of designing, building and theming each site from beginning to end as a separate project, I found myself in a mosh-pit of 40 developers, developing dozens of sites at the same time. We've been moving a whole "enterprise level" corporation over to Drupal, rapidly theming without any visual designs (still waiting). Come hear about what I've learned, and the strategy I created for best reusing code and coordinating the efforts of the team. Hint: Skinr is a big part of it all, and will help us quickly re-theme all of the sites, simultaneously, once the visual designs are delivered.
