Phoenix Code Sprint Copenhagen

Categories: Development Created by ben van 't ende
From September 3 until September 9 a code sprint will be held in Copenhagen to work on the first version of what we still call Phoenix. Phoenix is the next generation CMS built upon our newly developed PHP framework FLOW3.
There will be two main things that will be worked on during the code sprint. The first is the management view content editing (list module), which Marc & Sebastian have been working on for quite some time now. This module is going to be the foundation for editing content (nodes) and domain models and will be a kind of TCEMain (TYPO3.Admin) & list module. The second will be the content module, which includes the whole "content editing experience". That ranges from content creation, editing, deletion to publishing. Some work will go into the page tree as well. And some improvement for the ajax loading indications. Also the main goal of the sprint will be to have a working CMS capable of managing a site like, without the need for import/export as a fallback. Julle will be working on the integration of Composer ( as Package and Dependency manager. The Phoenix Code Sprint will use the hashtag #T3CPH

The codesprint is open for participation, although it will not really be possibe to get newcomers up to speed without consuming codesprint time. So contributing to code might be hard. There is an opportunity though to test the team's work, or people can even start building sites based on phoenix.
