Themes: Standardize Without Compromise

Andrew Olson

“One size fits all” does not apply when it comes to themes. Automatically selecting a theme based on your last project can be dangerous. Rolling your own custom theme from scratch every time can be extremely inefficient. Using a contributed theme can be frustrating as you override defaults and fight opinionated styles. Any of these approaches can exhaust even the most determined front end developer. Would standardizing a theme alleviate the pain?

In this session we will frame an approach to select a theme for your organization. Attendees will learn how to:
* Establish criteria to select a standard theme.
* Decide when to break away from the standard theme.
* Create a theme plan.
* Theme and sub-theme large scale projects.
* Onboard additional developers.
