March 2019: Developer Appreciation Day (DAD)

Kudos to coders!

As March has given way to April, 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:

  • 72 contributors

  • 32 patch authors

  • 115 reviews (4 features, 66 bugfixes, 43 tasks)

  • 20 documentation improvers

Your contributions - your TYPO3

We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement and engagement of all you dedicated developers who contribute towards the TYPO3 project. It’s important to us that you all know just how much we appreciate your work.

Your contributions are the foundation of the TYPO3 open source platform - thank you!

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: 1st Friday every month
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 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.

Interested in contributing yourself?

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.

See you next time

We’re grateful to have so many developers involved in 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! We’re excited to move forward with both Developer Appreciation Day as well as Review Friday, and look forward to celebrating our technical staff, employers and partners again. Stay tuned for April’s recap that we’ll be publishing at the beginning of the next month.
