Association Activity Report

As usual, community activity did slow down a bit in the summertime. There always tends to be a peak in work before the holidays which means less voluntary work for the TYPO3 community since we all have to keep our clients happy. Not only are they the ones paying for regular jobs, they’re also one of the driving forces behind TYPO3 development, since a lot of it is part of a paid project, and is thus indirectly sponsored by clients. Plus, let us not forget they do sponsor 5.0 development by being supporting member of the TYPO3 Association. So thank you all for your continuing support, we could not do without it!

Event Committee


Maybe a shock to all who did not
register so far: T3BOARD08, the TYPO3
Snowboard Tour,
is completely sold out. Might you still want to go, there still is the
possibility to register on the reserves list. Most of the time
we had quite a lot of cancellations
due to people having to finish a job
or similar reasons. Please ask
Monika Ingold ( to put you on the reserves
list if you
were late for registration.
It might also help to register to the
T3BOARD mailing list, where
people sometimes offer their tickets at the last moment.


The second edition of another
international TYPO3 community event, the TYPO3 Developer
(T3DD), was very successful and also super to attend, measuring the
responses we got
from attendees. Everybody was enthusiastic
about the event, the quality of the
workshop and the overall
atmosphere that dominated it. If you really want to stay ahead in
TYPO3 development while in the meantime having a say in it, this now
is the event to go
or send your developers to.


The international TYPO3
conference [1] has opened up
registration. The conference program is of very high quality this
year and mainly focuses on
technical topics. One of
the highlights will
probably be the presentation of the (status of
the) 5.0 framework by Robert Lemke and
Daniel Hinderink. Aside from
TYPO3-related talks there will be some great ‚outsiders‘ with
presentations. Like Prof. Dr. Frank Thissen speaking about
oriented communication‘ or Andrei Zmievski, Chief Architect
of Outspark
Inc., giving a talk about PHP 6 Unicode and i18n
and another one about PHP-GTK 2. He has
done lots of inside jobs for
Yahoo, so you might expect a lot from him. Then there’s
Nuescheler, the JCR spec lead and CTO of Day Software, talking about real world applications.
Altogether a strong program which makes this
event, combined with
its networking possibilities, really a must go.

Quality Control Committee

Certification Team

As mentioned in the last quarterly
report, all energy and funding of the Quality Control
Committee is
devoted to the Certification Team. The summer was also rather quiet
for the
team. As members were having holidays in different periods
each, the quarterly team meeting
was postponed to August. The most
important open tasks are the programming of a
good testing
extension, creating the questions and finding an official testing
partner, a
certification company that can deliver both the
infrastructure for testing as wellas the tools needed for the
certification process. Negotiations with two world
market leaders in
the field have taken a lot of time and energy, without resulting in a convenient
agreement so far.
