Practical Drupal Theming Course Available Without a Membership

We're making our very first individual course available for sale, Practical Drupal Theming, with no membership required. This is based on our popular theming workshop, which we have honed and updated over the years. The course uses select tutorials from Drupalize.Me organized into a course that will help you create your first Drupal theme.

Free Hands-On Theming Course May 18-22

DrupalCon Minneapolis, and the theming workshop we were planning to present, isn't going to happen this year, but instead we're going to make our Hands-On Theming course free all of next week, May 18–22, the original week of DrupalCon. This online course is based on our in-person workshops and covers the same material. If you enjoy the course, and have the means, we also ask that you donate to the Drupal Association to support their critical work and future DrupalCons.

Learn to Theme with Hands-On Exercises

Based on our popular Drupal 8 Theming Workshop, our new 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 ( 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.
