Drupal has themes, git has branches, gulp has tasks. What happens when your Drupal project has many themes and modules that all require task runners, when your git repo has overlapping work streams with different conflicting deployment dates and your sass, javascript and icon font resources are split between all of this. In an ideal world you build against this issue, in a real world you have to work around or with it. I'd like to share my thinking and experiences of creating a shared theme resource for a giant, global, multi-lingual, legacy, Drupal site.

Well formatted presentation. Clear and concisely presented with some elements of humour! Given this was Ross first talk he did a decent job. Straightforward presentation around how Ross deals with challenges within his work

I struggled to understand task runners like gulp. This was a useful talk that explained what it's all about and when it is pertinent to projects I am involded with.

Thumbs up for this presentation. It handy when someone goes through an issue you face yourself and provides a clear summary of how they came to the solution they did.

Really enjoyed this talk both from the subject matter - I love seeing people illustrate real problems and how they managed - through to the delivery itself which was well put together and had a relaxed pace.

Thumbs up!
