The TYPO3 Documentation Team underwent dynamic changes throughout 2023, fostering resilience and innovation in maintaining and enhancing the project's documentation.

Team Evolution

The year began with Martin Bless stepping down as team leader, succeeded by Lina Wolf, who led with experience and dedication. Chris Müller became the new Co-Lead of the Documentation Team. Further team changes ensued as David Bruchmann and Tom Warwick left, while Florian Thiele and Sarah McCarthy joined, enhancing the team's expertise.

We would like to thank Martin Bless very much for his commitment over many years and his dedication to the Documentation Team, without him we would not be where we are now. He has always served as a true role model in the Documentation Team, so a big thank you from the rest of the Documentation Team!
