Best Practices Team Remote Sprint

CET

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.

When

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).

Where

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.

What

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:

  1. runTest.sh
  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.

Your Benefits

Whether you are an experienced TYPO3 developer, or new to the CMS, there is always something to learn. Come along to this sprint and get real-world experience working with focus inside a team on an open published extension.

Participants of this sprint will learn-by-doing, in particular:

  • Using GitHub as a Git hosting and CI platform.
  • How to catch and fix bugs, covered by tests.
  • Best practices for extension development.
  • Fast end-to-end tests via TYPO3 testing framework functional tests.
