Optimize themes independently

Magento 2 theming is complex but very powerful: Instead of making a mess with HTML and PHP code, the Magento layout allows you to define structures before building them, resulting in better performance (provided your environment is properly tuned). The layout comes with pieces of XML, PHTML templating but also the underlying Block classes. Our Magento Theming is split up into 2 different parts: With this part I we'll give you the ins and outs of how theming works and how you can apply changes. The training covers XML layout and PHTML templating. On top of this, we show the best practices of theme development, like working with taskrunners and CSS preprocessors. As a followup on this training, you can also follow our Magento 2 Theming Part II which is about JavaScript (jQuery, RequireJS, KnockoutJS, UIComponents).
