Recap: TYPO3 Introduction Package Code Sprint Venlo
Thursday August 9th, found the Internet pipes of Venlo Netherlands heating up as members of the TYPO3 Introduction Package team came together for a 4-day code sprint. The big pushes for the sprint were completion of the TypoScript and TSConfig migration to files, replacing the pi-based tt_news with an extbase and fluid based news extension, and resolving about a dozen other quirks that had arisen over the past year.
Longest commuting team members Michael Cannon and Peichi Liu of Rosenheim Germany thought that Beech.it hospitality was top notch. Shortest commute members, Susanne Moog and Christian Kuhn felt that a half-case of Coke Zero per day was about right. Young buck Philipp Gampe of Bonn, figures that Venlo’s restaurants could use a few motherly cooking lessons. Finally, organizer and Hannover resident, Helmut Hummel concedes that a 3-hour train ride wasn’t too bad for having a productive weekend.
Downloadable results from the Venlo Introduction Package Code Sprint will be available with the TYPO3 6.0 release at http://typo3.org/download/ in October.
