Application: The TYPO3 Community Podcast

Welcome to Application, the TYPO3 Community Podcast! Hosted by Jeffery A. McGuire, this is where we share your stories, your projects, and the difference you make … in, around, and with TYPO3 CMS. 

Application is conversations connecting developers, marketers, consultants, integrators, designers, and end-users with each other and the value we all deliver. 

As we meet the community, we will be looking for insights that we can all learn from. We’ll be asking about our guest’s origin stories, clients, projects and successes. 

Meet the humans behind the technology!
