The TYPO3 Education Committee starts its work

Categories: Association , Education & Certification Created by Peter Pröll
During the last combined meeting of the TYPO3 Association’s Board and Expert Advisory Board the issue of dropping certification numbers was addressed. The boards also saw a need in foster the educational mandate of the TYPO3 Association. Therefore the decision has been made to install the Education Committee.

The mission

The Education Committee will create an educational strategy, enabling community members and TYPO3 beginners to access TYPO3 related education easier.
We will foster the number of qualified and well trained and certified TYPO3 professionals and achieve a growth of the community and the ecosystem around TYPO3. The work of the Education Committee will support companies in the continuing education of their employees.

The first meeting

After some preparation work and some one-to-one phone calls the first hangout of the committee took place on April, 3rd with key persons from the TYPO3 education area: Pascal Dürsteler (Lead Certification Team), Stefan Busemann (Representative of the T3A Board), Boris Hinzer (Lead Editorial Team), Naike Beggiato (T3A Executive Secretary), Patrick Lobacher (Author of the What’s New Slides) and Peter Pröll (Committee Lead).
The focus of the meeting has been to collect and analyze the weaknesses of the status quo. We already launched a task force for a first initiative which is planned to come into effect pretty soon. We will keep you updated on this.
