Reviewing a patch is good karma…
…and when done in a group it's way more fun than doing it on your own!
Every Open Source Software (OSS) project thrives on contributions of its community. Of course, TYPO3 is no exception to that rule. No documentation, infrastructure or even the CMS itself would survive without the constant efforts of volunteers out there that put their time and energy into the project.
On that note - thank you! For every line of code, every pull request, every idea, every bug report and - of course - every bag of sweets given to anybody willing to spend their time to make the project better.
Every first Friday of a month TYPO3 GmbH will be opening its doors from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to host a Review Friday, an event for anyone interested in making a difference where they can simply walk in, pick a seat and boot up their laptop to spend their time with us, contributing to what we all love so much, TYPO3. There is room for coding, testing, talking and sharing stories. Food and beverages will be taken care of by us.
The main purpose of the event is to get the amount of open patches down. You can take a look at the amount of open issues and other stats and diagrams on forger.
Even if you can't attend in person, there is always the internet. We coordinate tasks via Slack and the TYPO3 Teamspeak server (typo3.teamspeak-server.info), so all you need to do is raise your virtual hand and get in touch.
We set up a Facebook Event where you can sign up. If you shouldn’t have an account simply message me on Slack (@maddy) or in a best-case-scenario just walk into our office.
The TYPO3 GmbH staff and me in particular are really looking forward to meeting you for a day of contribution.
Yours, Anja Leichsenring
