Benefits From Becoming a Team
Becoming an official team means that we now have a new team page typo3.org, The TYPO3 Best Practices Team.
This lets us share all the information about our team, including our mission, rules, how we work, and our active members. Previously, a lot of this information was well-hidden in the Documents folder of our Git repo. We’ll also be able to use our page to communicate news from the team.
The other main benefit of becoming an official team means that our budget now relies on the TYPO3 Association Board rather than the yearly voting process. This gives us peace of mind and we can focus on getting work done.
Get To Know Us
You might not have heard about us yet, even though we have been active for several years already. Head to our new team page, The TYPO3 Best Practices Team to find out more about us. You can also check out Oliver Klee’s talk, Automating the code quality of your extensions from TYPO3 Online Days 2021, to get a feel for what the team stands for.
Join and Help Us
We are looking for new members, and everyone is welcome to join our team. We are currently lacking expertise in the following areas:
- Intermediate GitLab-CI and GitHub Actions
- Acceptance testing
- Frontend interaction (forms, flash messages, validation, …)
- Improving the documentation
You are welcome to open new issues and pull requests.
We also invite you to lurk in the TYPO3 Slack Channel (#qa-best-practices) and join our bi-weekly calls within that channel.
Most things happen within the repository and our bi-weekly calls, so you might not get much out of lurking within the channel alone.
You can find all this information, including the details of our next call, on our new team page.
