Are you a TYPO3 developer and would you like to meet other coders face-to-face more frequently? Or maybe you’re new to the TYPO3 project and would like to test the waters? We open our office doors every first Friday of the month for a full day of tackling issues in the review queue.
Location: TYPO3 GmbH, Am Wehrhahn 41, 40211 Düsseldorf, Germany
Date: August 9, 2019
Time: 9am to midnight
Goal: Get things done, indulge in that green bar feeling and have a good time!
What to expect
The review process improves the overall quality of the code and is an essential part of the development of TYPO3. Review Friday is open to anyone who wants to help out, and the process is simple.
Come along, pick a seat, boot up your laptop, and spend time with us contributing to what we all love so much, TYPO3. There is room for coding, testing, talking and sharing stories. Food and beverages will be taken care of by us.
Sign up by simply contacting Anja Leichsenring via Slack (@maddy) or just come along to our office in Düsseldorf. We can’t wait to see you! And do let your friends and co-coders know about this regular event.
Being an open source project, TYPO3 CMS is highly depended on its devoted developers, marketers and other contributors alike. If you're interested in contributing to TYPO3 yourself, you're more than welcome to do so! Find out more about how to contribute to the TYPO3 core as well as the documentation.
We’re grateful to have so many developers involved in the our open source project–developers who believe in bringing good ideas to life, and who are truly passionate about our powerhouse content management system TYPO3. Remember: all it takes is a single patch to make a difference! Stay tuned for August’s recap that we’ll be publishing at the beginning of next month.
