Introduction to TYPO3 FlowIn his workshop series “Introduction to TYPO3 Flow” Robert Lemke provided Flow-interested developers with answers to their questions. After a general introduction to Domain Driven Design, AOP and the PHP-Package-Management 'Composer' things went straight to the point and Robert explained, based on his Bookshop Example, how one can program a small shop with a few elegant lines of code and a lot of Flow Basic functions. Here are the slides to the topic: TYPO3 Flow 2.0 Workshop T3BOARD13
Grid Elements 2.0The TYPO3 extension “Grid Elements“ that allows Grid Layouts for content elements has existed since 2011. This extension has been developed further with the aim to fundamentally improve the usability of the TYPO3 backend. Interestingly in this case, the project has been financed by the Crowdfunding-Platform Startnext where some 100 supporters helped raise the required 30,000 euros. On T3BOARD, project leader Jo Hasenau showed the possibilities of Grid Elements 2.0 and how it works in practice. The following video will give you some more insight into Grid Elements 2.0 (German with english subs): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykR-e10S8NU.

TYPO3 for studentsOn Wednesday 30 students from an engineering college visited the TYPO3-Community at the Schmittenhöhe. Core developer Michael Stucki showed the students what TYPO3 is about, how the Open Source CMS functions and how the community further develops the system. He also answered questions from the students, for instance, about the difference between TYPO3 TYPOlight / Contao and the advantages of using Open Source Software over proprietary software.
