The Best Practices Team has a productive and enjoyable 2023, and look forward to more events, new team members and facing new challenges in 2024. Check out our view of the road ahead.

Closing Out 2023

Towards the end of 2023, we held our first two remote sprints. Find out what it was like from a newcomer’s point of view in this blog post by Karsten Nowak: A Recap of the First Remote Code Sprint With the Best Practices Team.

At TYPO3 Developer Days 2023, Oliver Klee presented a great session on software quality for TYPO3 projects. Oliver gave an overview of which tools the TYPO3 Core and the TYPO3 Best Practices Team use for improving the quality of TYPO3 projects. Check out the slides on Speakerdeck.

Looking Forward to 2024

This year, our main goals are to:

  • Increase the number of active contributors and team members.
  • Make EXT:tea compatible with TYPO3 v 13 LTS.
  • Integrate as best practice for EXT:tea.
  • Demonstrate how to update TYPO3 Extensions.
