Keynote speaker announcement: Morten DK

Published date

We are excited to announce our second keynote speaker Morten DK - Drupal themer, web designer and Drupal 8 core theme classy maintainer. Last at DrupalSouth in 2014 in Wellington, Morten returns with a talk about showing some of the design problems that Drupal has inherited over the years by being a developer driven project, and point to a way out of this, so we can make Drupal be pretty.

Admin themeing & design for a modern Drupal 8

Drupal 8 feels and look like Drupal 7 for the backend user - not the developer, that knows about all the REST, twig, cmi, [insert more buzzwords here] awesomeness. Sadly this makes Drupal feel like its a dinosaur from 2010 - and not the modern, fresh system for powering a web experience.

So what can we do about the presentation of Drupal 8? Can fancy design help us out to get rid of the smell of 2010?
