Tampa Bay Drupal User Group Theme
The Tampa Bay Drupal Users Group is a group for Drupal enthusiasts who enjoy getting together the first Thursday of each month at 6pm to talk about Drupal, plan Drupal events, and have some fun. During TBDUG meetings we showcase modules, projects, and themes.
When I moved to St. Petersburg, Florida, I joined TBDUG and found out they were in dire need of a new theme on their website. Since I was learning all about the Omega theme and why responsive design is important, I chose Omega as the base theme for the site.
Because it's responsive, the content will shift and rescale itself depending on the device that the viewer is using. This means that you don't have to maintain a separate mobile theme. I was able to quickly knock out a subtheme of Omega for the TBDUG site that was friendly, inviting, and cross-platform usable. This theme has a lot of settings and options that can be overwhelming at first, but if you spend a little time learning about how to use the Omega theme it can mean getting a responsive theme up and running quickly. It only took me a couple of days to knock out this theme. It's simple, but it does the job! I went with an energetic color scheme that would match the TBDUG logo, and tapped into Google fonts for the fun typeface used for the site name.
Sadly I'm moving out of St. Petersburg next week, but I had a great time living here and I'm glad I got to meet all the fine folks in TBDUG!
