I will teach you port templates to Drupal 6 themes

If being a co-lead organizer for Drupalcon Szeged 2008, getting married in three weeks, moving flats and of course building products and services with Acquia would not be enough, I thought I'd top my Drupalcon participation with a nice surprise session submission.

If my session makes it (vote!), and you come to Drupalcon Szeged (you should), I'll teach you how can you convert an existing HTML/CSS template to a Drupal 6 theme in a matter of 45 minutes, with the full live demo from the ground up included with instructions. I've managed to do this before, so I am confident it should be lots of fun. We will break our Drupal site numerous times, and learn to live with it while the tough time constraints are looming on us, and should of course get to a gorgeous end result. We will convert the Modern World template by Solucija and will get to a Drupal 6 theme with blocks, menus a theme screenshot and all.

I'll also tell you how can you contribute the theme to drupal.org or through other means if the template license does not allow you to upload to drupal.org. This is of course not a requirement, since you might as well only work for your own client. You decide!

Just make sure to vote on my session, to help me get into the program and come to Drupalcon not only for this great session, but all the other fun programs which are on offer. You definitely should not miss it!
