After this initial step it is now time to come up with more initiatives: We have already done a poll via twitter to find a name for an educational portal within typo3.org and decided “TYPO3 Campus” meets our vision (thanks @PechGehabt & @MichaelSchams for your inspiration).
A TYPO3 Campus in our vision is a portal helping newcomers to have an easy start with TYPO3 as well as helping TYPO3 professionals keep up to date with the latest developments. Ideas range from webcasts to tutorials, online learning with skill testing and gamification factor, 5 minutes of typoscript a day, lists of recommended trainers and other cool stuff.
We are aware that this vision means a lot of work to be transformed into reality. Also it is the will of the Education Committee to work together with TYPO3 training professionals and have a win-win situation much more than becoming a competitor. This is setting the scenario for the first sprint.
