Our understanding of planet formation is rapidly evolving. The classical planet formation theory, developed when the only known planetary system was our own Solar System, has been revised to account for the observed diversity of the exoplanetary systems. At the same time, the increasing observational capabilities of the young stars and their surrounding disks bring new constraints on the planet formation process. In this talk, I will summarize the most important recent developments in the planet formation theory. I will pay special attention to the early stages of planet formation when dust grains grow to pebbles and the first gravitationally bound building blocks of planets form.
