1. How TYPO3 Neos got started in 2005

    The Neos 1.0 release is getting closer and thus I'm collecting materials for all the talks I may give at conferences during the next few weeks. During my search I also found a whole album of photos from the historic meeting of the then TYPO3 Core Team in Kettrup Bjerge, Denmark. This was the very meeting where we came up with the basis for the new TYPO3 brand, its vision, its mission statement.

  2. Neos Sprint Frankfurt

    So the last thing you heard from me months ago is that I switched companies?

If you are serious about being ahead of the competition with TYPO3 Neos, now is the time to get involved! Read more


  5. Preview: Cloud Resources for TYPO3 Flow 2.1

    When I started writing the first lines of code for Flow's resource management, I essentially had one goal: all data stored on a web server is temporary – persistent data can be stored elsewhere. This feature didn't make it into a Flow release so far, but the APIs were shaped for that goal from the beginning. In Flow 2.1 we'll finally see cloud storage and cloud resources happen – and it's basically a matter of switching it on. Read more
