Regular Open Sprints

Get more done together in open source. In the TYPO3 community, we recommend working together in regular open sprints. This concept was introduced in 2019 by the TYPO3 Association. 

The idea behind "combined sprints"

In the past every team had its own (mostly invite-only) sprints. But for many projects, bringing teams to work together is more effective. For example to work on the website: the design team, server team and the website team harmonize well. So that's why we encourage teams to organize combined sprints towards shared goals. And even when teams are working on different projects, being in the same space at the same time helps teams mingle, share ideas, and participants can meet new people.

  1. Help teams to meet at one location and join forces. 
  2. Provide a location and accommodation for teams from the regular open sprint budget.
  3. Make it easier for interested community members to get involved - onboard them when they want to sneak into a team.

Teams can prepare collaborative agendas for regular open sprints, but they can also just share a sprint location. Even when they aren't directly working on the same project, they can get together and share the same space. It is always inspiring when people see what other teams are doing. It's a great way to get new ideas and creative solutions. And of course, these kind of sprints are also open for everyone who wants to contribute to the project. For example, to improve documentation, create content, create a patch, do a review, and to meet others in the community.

Every 15th of a month, the TYPO3 remote days are taking place. Members of the TYPO3 teams met online and collaborate. 

You’re Invited: Join Our Second Remote Sprint!

The second Best Practices Team remote sprint is happening on 15 December 2023. We'll meet on Slack for a day of general housework and working through our backlog. While we may not complete all our goals, this sprint is an excellent opportunity to learn and collaborate. If you are a newcomer to TYPO3 development, come along to gain insights into teamwork, GitHub, bug resolution, and automated testing.


The sprint will take place on 15 December 2023. We’ll kick off at 11:00 (CET) and we plan to finish at 17:00 (CET).


The sprint is fully remote. We’ll meet in the TYPO3 Slack channel, #best-practice-team. Come prepared with your favorite IDE, have the EXT:tea extension installed and running, and make sure you’re familiar with the TYPO3 Coding Guidelines.


Łukasz will host the sprint. We’ll start with a quick check-in of participants, make sure everyone is set for success, then we’ll distribute the tasks among the attendees. If you’re a newcomer, there will be people to support you and answer questions.

We plan to work on these topics in the following order:

  2. Cleanup
  3. Make the extension conform to the best practices
  4. Implement changes related to docs

We probably won't complete all the goals, so the remaining tasks will be carried over to future work and sprints.
