Actually, you have to know a lot to be a Drupal 8 guru.  Below is a list.  I’m not saying that you have to know all that to use or even theme drupal.  But to become a core developer on the Drupal product, write modules, etc — basically a guru–, you need to at least know what all of these technologies are.

  • HTML 5
  • CSS 3
  • Javascript (jQuery is Javascript)
  • jQuery (Drupal uses jQuery)
  • Bootstrap (front-end framework for responsive design and styling)
  • Symfony (Drupal 8 uses Symfony components)
  • Twig (Drupal 8 theming engine)
  • YAML (for configuration files)
  • Restful web services
  • OOP (object oriented programming)
  • underscore.js (that’s in there too)

Did I miss anything else?
