Best Practices Team: Remote Code Sprint


You’re Invited: Join Our Remote Sprint!

The Best Practices Team's inaugural remote sprint is happening on 7 May 2024. 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 7 May 2024. We’ll kick off at 9am (UTC) and we plan to finish at 3pm (UTC).


The sprint is fully remote. We’ll meet in the TYPO3 Slack Channel, #best-practice-team

Come prepared, we have collected all preparation steps at our GitHub Wiki.


Daniel Siepmann 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. Continue with the tasks that got started during the last sprint
  2. Finish the open tasks
  3. Work on 13.x support
  4. Do the other breaking changes

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

  • 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.
