Responsive Enhancement is Responsive Web Design and Progressive Enhancement with a content first approach. Before websites were built 960 pixels wide, but the landscape is changing with the explosive growth of mobile. Our sites are viewed on laptops, desktops, TVs and a growing number of mobile phones and tablets. In this session, we will discuss Responsive Web Design, Progressive Enhancement and Mobile First in regards to Drupal.

We dress differently, talk differently, act differently, and most importantly, think differently. Designers value shine, and developers value structure. Designers dress to show off their apparently exquisite taste, and developers dress for 2-week code binges. We both like coffee, but only one of us has been to rehab because of it. At our cores, we are different beasts, but we share common goals, and are probably more similar than you think.

Join Marc and Mark (yes, seriously) as they first air their dirty laundry about each other, and then come back together in the spirit of collaboration.

In this session I’ll present a roadmap to learning Drupal Theming. You won’t learn everything about Drupal theming, but you will learn that you don’t need to know everything in order to start building Drupal themes.

We’ll cover all the major parts of Drupal theming:

  • Theming Examples
  • Architecture of the Drupal Theme Layer
  • .info files
  • Stylesheet inheritance
  • Template files
  • Template variables
  • Preprocess functions
  • Theme functions

Do you LUV Panels? Do you HATE Panels markup? Do you LUV the Zen Layout Method? So you want your entire site to USE Panels?

If so, this session is definitely for you. If not, you can at least learn how to create your very own panels layout for your zen subtheme. We’ll be showing how to incorporate the zen layout method into a panels layout, that you can then reuse from site to site.

Here we will weigh the Pros and Cons of Using Grid Systems (e.g. 960 or Blueprint) vs. Starter Themes (e.g. Zen, Mothership) vs. Full Custom (e.g., roll your own). What benefits do each offer and when are they most appropriate?

Grids have long been a foundational consideration in modern graphic and text design for much the last century, but only recently have they become something of a fashionable standard on the web. In this session, I plan on covering: * What are grids?

Learn from how to ease Drupal theming frustration with Zen 6.x-2.0 from me (JohnAlbin), the maintainer of the Zen project and a top contributor to Drupal 7.

  • Zen organization — sub-themes, stylesheets, what to use and what to delete
  • Layout — building complex layouts with Zen Columns or grids
  • z-index — you need more hammers
  • IA — building navigation
  • Accessibility — open access can be easy
  • Q&A — ask me anything (Drupal-related, please)

Surprisingly, this will be the first presentation I’ve given about Zen in over 2 years!

Small non-intrusive animations and interactions can greatly enhance the user experience and impress website visitors and clients. jQuery and jQuery UI make it easy to add these enhancements with very little knowledge of javascript or programming. Learn how!

No understanding of jQuery, javascript or even Drupal theming is required, but a good understanding of CSS selectors (e.g.
