June 2018: Developer Appreciation Day (DAD)

Kudos to Coders!

As June has given way to July it’s time to reflect on what the past month has brought us. Recapping the evaluation of our most recent contributions to the TYPO3 core, we find some remarkable numbers. You guys are truly amazing!

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers

Last month we had altogether:

  • 83 contributors

  • 44 patch authors

  • 199 reviews (9 features, 69 bugfixes, 119 tasks, 1 cleanup)

  • 27 documentation improvers

Your contributions - Your TYPO3

Join us for Review Friday!

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: July 6, 2018 (first Friday of the month)
Time: 9:00 am 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 via Facebook (link is in the event description) or by 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.

See you next time

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 July’s recap that we’ll be publishing at the beginning of next month.


Good to see, there was quite some activity on improving the documentation in the sunny month of June. Thank you, everyone! And keep it up!
