One of the top reasons people cite when canceling a membership with Drupalize.Me is, "No time to learn." We hear you. It's hard to set aside time for self-paced professional development for any number of reasons -- lack of support from your employer, other priorities that make it hard to justify "tutorial time", or feeling like you're wasting time looking for the right starting point that meets your needs.
Registering for a scheduled professional development event like a workshop or conference helps some folks overcome these barriers. How? A workshop or conference can fit into your professional development plan at work and is easier to set aside time for than self-paced learning. It's easier to communicate to others "I'm going to be attending this workshop and unavailable for other things during these days/times" than it is to set boundaries around self-paced learning -- even though we wish it were just as easy!

Learn Drupal's theming system in a hands-on workshop
Are you ready to set yourself on a path to learn Drupal's theming system? Maybe you've just inherited a Drupal site and need to update the look-and-feel and you want to know the correct method. Or maybe you're a long-time Drupaler with more experience pre-Drupal-8 and need to get up-to-speed on Drupal 8 or 9 theming practices.
Class size will be limited to 12 people so you can ask questions, get live one-on-one help, and focus on your specific use cases. You can read a detailed syllabus for the workshop here. You'll also get:
- Example code with extensive documentation suitable for use as reference material for future projects

Does this sound like something you want to do but the schedule just doesn't work for you? We're interested to hear your feedback on what scheduling options would work better for you. Let us know!
