Gatsby Themes are the next iteration of web development. They take all the good things about Gatsby and make them even more reusable and extendable. Themes are composable chunks of fully functional websites-- not just visual aspects.

Because they’re composable, you can have multiple themes on a single site. This lets you pick the right eCommerce theme, with whatever backing engine you want. You can then install whatever blog theme you want-- Wordpress, Contentful, etc. and you can customize them both. It's up to you!

For a written version of this course, check out the Gatsby docs.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Overall, it was a great insight into creating a theme in Gatsby. My only "complaint" (really just a constructive criticism) is that while switching between files, you rarely stated which folder you were heading into (i.e. gatsby-theme-events or site). With three different package.js files it started to get confusing because you had some panels open in your code editor covering up the site tree. Also, the intellisense that was popping up while you were typing got in the way. By no means is this a dis on you or the tutorial! Just an FYI as to why I didn't give you a higher rating. Keep up the great work and hope to see you out in the world one day. :)

    Great course, theme-ui has been updated to a new version. Some of your code needs a slight update
