December 2014

Today we're releasing the last videos in the Drupal 8 Developer Prep series. I hope you've been enjoying these as they've been rolling out, and that you're excited to test your chops on a Drupal 8 project soon.

I've been working hard on the planning process for the next video collection on BuildAModule and will be starting recording shortly. I'll share more details as soon as I get a little further in the process, but it will be an important addition to the library and I think many of you will enjoy it quite a bit. If you don't hear from me in a while, just know that I'm hard at work building it out.

Enjoy and have an excellent week!

In a previous video we looked at using the dump tool in our template to get more information about a variable. In this video we show you how to show some basic information about each variable available to you without running the risk of crashing your browser.

New! (FREE!) How to figure out what Twig template file is reposible for any output on the page

In Drupal 6 and 7 we had to use a contributed module to figure out what template files were responsible for what output, but in Drupal 8 the tool is built right in! In this video we show you how the debugging tools in Twig add comments to the HTML to let you track down the source of any code you want to modify.

New! Congratulations and a quick review of what we covered in this course

Nice work! In the final video in this series we do a brief overview of what we covered and give you some final thoughts on the big picture.
