About the author

Hi, my name is Sander and I'm a web developer from Belgium. Early 2014, I started an intership at company in Ghent. The company was mainly developing websites with Drupal. During this internship, I started developing website with the software and I got really excited about it. "Come for the code, stay for the community," is what I read on the Drupal.org website. Later that year, at a local sprint, I had the chance to start contributing and join that community myself. It all got very real when my very first patch for Drupal 8 core got committed. I came for the code and I stayed for the community… Later that year, I started traveling around Europe to attend various Drupal events. During those travels, I met so many new interesting and talented people. These amazing people have inspired me during the writing of this book.

About this book

Somewhere after the summer of 2014, before DrupalCon Amsterdam (2014), I decided to start writing a theming guide. At first, it was a very small markdown document. It was a (Github) gist with an overview of front-end changes in Drupal 8. Since I felt that there was so much to talk about, I decided to split up the document into chapters. Before I knew, some sort of book was born. What you're reading right now is the result of hours of work and free time. If you enjoy reading this book, please let me know. The appreciation from several people has been my motivation to continue working on this book.
