T3CON12DE - Community, the TYPO3 family and Neos

Mon. 15th October, 2012

The conference started on Thursday October 4, with special development workshops for the upcoming TYPO3 products,, Unit Testing, Versioning, and the popular introduction day introducing the TYPO3 CMS to newcomers. A full day tutorial covering SCRUM Training demonstrated the benefits of agile development and coached the very interested participants, by means of practical examples, SCRUM games and modelling. The SCRUM Session was part of the newly established T3SCRUM educational project, which provides training and webinars, blog posts and other communication about SCRUM and other methodologies for software development (link: t3scrum.com). The day ended with a very short General Assembly of the TYPO3 Association where two new members where elected for the Business Control Committee and Expert Advisory Board as replacement for two member that left.

Robert showed the different features from TYPO3 4.6 and 4.7, up to the TYPO3 Government Package leading to the new TYPO3 6.0 - available by the end of november 2012 and introducing the new File Abstraction Layer and Namespace for the TYPO3 CMS. By showing off existing products, like FLOW3 and Fluid, along with upcoming solutions such as Surf, which have grown from the original TYPO3 product, Robert Lemke continued to introduce the new branding scheme for the TYPO3 Family. The main idea behind the new branding scheme is to have TYPO3 as the “family name” while the different products can be called by their “first name”. TYPO3 now acts as an umbrella brand for the different products, enabling TYPO3 products be either called by their full name (e.g. TYPO3 Flow for the Flow Framework) or by their everyday names - Flow (formerly known as FLOW3). Further information regarding the new branding scheme can be found here: typo3.org/the-brand/the-typo3-family/ Another branding move was the TYPO3 Logo, which now moves in front of every product name and becomes monochromatic with orange as the single color.
