This course provides a variety of approaches for making dynamic layouts in Drupal, and helps users to choose the right approach for their site. The course provides techniques and best practices for configuring a flexible and extendable layout for websites and enables users to get more control over the look and feel of their sites by creating custom themes in Drupal.

Target audience: Drupalists new to theming (Learners) and HTML / CSS developers new to Drupal (Newcomers).
