Awesome Hero Images (and hook block view alter uglyness)

Awesome Hero Images and hook_block_view_alter uglyness

Hero Images have been a big trend in web design for the past few years but they're not quite as easy as just sticking an image on a node.  To do them well with good design control you'll want to rely on views, blocks, and some trickery to make them play nicely.  In this episode, Bob shows you how, plus opens himself up to ridicule by attempting to use the hook_block_view_alter() function in Drupal 8.  Prepare yourself for some "this was so much easier in D7" complaints along with some more cool Drupal tricks.
