The idea of creating the T3CMD was born in 2015 at the TYPO3 Camp Mallorca and has been three years in the making. During the introduction session, Rico Schüppel (CEO of davitec GmbH) and Björn Jacob (CEO of TRITUM GmbH) gave us an insight into why it needed time to shape the event in a good way. Besides the excitement over the freshly conceived idea of launching a new TYPO3 Camp and extending TYPO3 community activity, there were also insecurities and doubts that needed to be overcome.
Since then, TRITUM GmbH has taken an active role in organizing the annual eCommerceCamp in Jena, thus gaining valuable experience and knowledge in organizing large-scale events. This paved the way to putting the T3CMD idea to action.
With joint forces, the TYPO3 User Group Dresden (T3UGDD), davitec GmbH and TRITUM GmbH decided to give it a try and called for sponsors. All three report that they were pleasantly surprised by the large number of people interested in supporting the idea. And that’s how TYPO3 Camp Mitteldeutschland started moving from an idea to becoming reality in January of 2018.
