Back to Basics Drupal 8 Theming
It can also be challenging navigating all of the tools and approaches that are available without getting overwhelmed or distracted.

Which of these frameworks, build tools, modules and techniques are foundational to my success theming with Drupal 8 and which might be getting in the way?
In this session I’ll write an open letter to my theoretical beginner self and recommend the tools and approaches that can help them build a great Drupal theme without getting in over their head. I’ll also recommend related topics to learn next as they become comfortable with the basics.
