A review of interesting Drupal tutorials posted this week: October 28 - November 4, 2015.

For Site Builders
A tool for adding accessibility testing to an automated test suite, so it can run on every commit. Cool idea.

In Drupal 8, the theme functions have been removed. They are all replaced with twig template files. Anywhere you would call theme('xxxxxx') in Drupal 7, you now use a render array.
