Design4Drupal - Audit Your Theme

Speaker Session

Themes can become a beast. Over time, features get added and new patterns get introduced. Tight deadlines may also cause you to make inefficient decisions with the desire to one day go back and refactor. There are also times you will inherit a project built by another team and need to understand how to add on and reduce duplication. How do you size up a theme to ensure you are efficient and not growing out of proportion? Bounteous' Andy Olson will tell you how at Design4Drupal!
