In this workshop, we'll discuss how you can use Liquid, Shopify's nifty templating language, to pull information from your store and alter the webpage layout.  You can also open a free Partner account, which you can use during and after the workshop to work on Shopify projects of your own.

We'll start with an overview of Shopify's "theme environment" and best practices that will save you time and effort in your customizations.  From there you'll learn how to make alternative templates for your store's products and pages to provide more variety in your store's look. 

By the end of the day, your store will be transformed from an  "out-of-the-box template" to a wonderfully unique design.
