The Agency Meetup Days (AMDs) are coming up again soon. These events are open to anyone doing business with TYPO3 CMS and who’s interested in a less techy get-together.
The TYPO3 CMS Certified Editor Exam (TCCE) is one way to present your skills in TYPO3. In this blog post SkillDisplay explains to you what such an editor actually does and helps you to prepare yourself for the exam.
After making changes to TYPO3´s core we always run a series of testing which consists of four different steps. Functional tests are an integral part of this review process and give answers to the questions “Did we build a correctly working software?” and “Does the software meet the business requirements?”.
Building a website on open-source software doesn’t mean the website is going to be free - it requires configuration, maintenance and ongoing support. But it does mean that you have free access to the source code and can have your website customized very precisely according to your wishes.
It’s important to evaluate new technology before applying it to your website. Thriving in the digital era means adapting to the right standards at the right time. And there are ways to increase the lifespan of your website and make it last a while longer.
Units are the smallest testable parts of software. The workflow patterns we use for testing TYPO3´s core have evolved over time and unit testing became an integral part quite a few years ago. This was after experiencing rather strange issues when first integrating the scheduler into the core.
Learning is a personal experience and everyone learns in a different way. It’s about content, and also about the different styles of learning. SkillDisplay shows how TYPO3 skills can be learnt and uses two methods for effectively visualizing information: the so called SkillTree and the SkillPath.
There are still lots of people who mistakenly believe that open-source software is just about saving money. It’s not. The move to open-source technology is a much more fundamental shift.
Developing a successful and strong software requires a decent development platform with specific hardware, third-party software and parallelization of jobs. An efficient communication between this setup and other parts of the system ensures that processes run smoothly and swiftly.
SkillDisplay uses a concept to make your learning experience rich and fun. In order to learn a new skill, you have to understand the dependencies. Here's how.
Automatic testing is integrated into the process of developing TYPO's core. Every patch version that is pushed to the review system goes through a standard process and multiple verification ensures that the software conforms to requirements.
