  • Apply Drupal 8 cache tags and contexts for better performance

Who Should Attend

  • Back-end Developers
  • Front-end Developers
  • Site Builders


This session is for people who may have created Drupal themes and overridden twig files, but are less comfortable creating render arrays, utilizing cache tags&contexts, writing maintainable twig code, and debugging twig.
