Drupal 8 has a powerful templating engine Twig which makes it possible for us to adapt a  variety of templating methodologies.

We will explore a component first templating methodology inspired from atomic design and how we can develop themes which are robust, scalable, highly maintainable and quick to develop.

In this session, we will learn about the following :

1. Atomic design and component driven concepts.
2. Setup Atomic templating using Twig in Drupal 8.
3. Advantages of using atomic design on frontend projects.
4. Requirements from backend team in order to set frontend team up for success.

The key takeaway for attendees will be to develop a component driven mindset for frontend projects and implementing atomic design in drupal 8 using default drupal templating engine Twig.
