Learn to Theme with Hands-On Exercises

Based on our popular Drupal 8 Theming Workshop, our new guide, Hands-On Theming (https://drupalize.me/guide/hands-on-theming), is a 7-week course of tutorials and hands-on exercises that will get you up and running with your first Drupal 8 theme. Each week contains tutorials surrounding a key concept in Drupal 8 theming. At the end of each week, you'll have an opportunity to put into practice what you've learned in the related tutorials with a hands-on exercise. By the end of this course, you'll have a working Drupal 8 theme ready for you to further explore and learn concepts in Drupal 8 theming.

To facilitate hands-on practice, we've partnered with Stack Starter (https://stackstarter.io/). To follow along with the steps in each exercise, you can use a customized Stack Starter web-based environment. You'll get a pre-configured Drupal 8 development site ready to start theming. It also includes a web-based file manager and code editor as well as a console where you can run Drush commands.

New tutorials: Search API and Solr in Drupal 8

We've published 18 tutorials on Search API and Solr in Drupal. Learn about Drupal's built-in search capabilities and how to take your site's search to the next level with Apache Solr in this new series.

Videos Added to Web Services in Drupal 8 Tutorials

Since the release of Drupal 8, we've prioritized two main things: 1) getting Drupal 8 tutorials out to you as soon as we can, and 2) keeping our published Drupal 8 tutorials up-to-date. We've also introduced written tutorials. Written tutorials enable us to get tutorials out to you more quickly and are much much easier to keep up-to-date. But, we are still committed to producing video tutorials, when they make the most sense. What this means is that most of the time we'll release written tutorials as soon as they are ready and then add a video to it later.

So, without further ado, here's a bunch of new videos we've recently added to tutorials in our Web Services in Drupal 8 series!

Release Day: Drupal Development with Docker

In this series we introduce Docker, a container runtime that allows you to run pre-packed, sandboxed Linux applications anywhere.
