User group meeting

So, you've finished building your amazing Drupal site with all the features and functionality you want... BUT it doesn't look the way you want it visually!

To fix this you'll need to build a custom theme. Creating a Drupal theme from scratch can be a lot of work which involves CSS, Javascript, HTML and PHP, which is why most people start with a base theme instead.

Omega is a base theme that allows you to build a custom theme using entirely CSS (and some JavaScript if you want it) - no HTML or PHP required!

Oh, and did I mention that it allows you to quickly and easily build mobile-first and responsive designs as well? It's 100% fancy buzz word compliant. :-)

In this presentation, Kevin Ciesielski, will show us how to create a custom, responsive Drupal theme using Omega!

No experience required - if you never created a theme and always wondered what that's about, this presentation is for you. And if you've built themes - but not using Omega - you'll get to see all the awesome tools it gives you.
