Event signup is now closed
edit by litwol: Due to unusually large number of people wanting to attend this event, I have had to close the signup to the list. Unfortunately we've reached the venue capacity. If some one wanted to attend the event but didnt make the list please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to check for last minute availability and to get on the waiting list.
Bob Christenson from Mustardseed Media, Inc. will be teaching this seminar on "real world" Drupal theming. He will be talking more about the practical "how to theme" and will NOT be doing in depth detail on how the drupal theme system works (although we'll cover the basics of course).
Bob is a themer, not a developer, so expect a designer's view on the Drupal theme system, not a programmer/developer's view. This will be most helpful if you are an HTML/CSS designer and want to learn how to theme/style Drupal! (if you're a Drupal developer, you may already know everything that will be covered)
