SoftVision at the TYPO3 Conference 2010

As last year, SoftVision attended the T3CON – the official TYPO3 (Enterprise Content Management System) Conference – to learn more about the latest and future trends in TYPO3 and Open Source.

This, the 6th conference, was hosted at the Holiday Inn Frankfurt City-South Hotel. More than 460 international users and developers from more than 30 countries met there. Representatives of different industries, mostly from the sectors internet, technology, media and marketing, attended the conference.

With its 3 different tracks the conference offered a lot of input for beginners (Orientation Track), decision-makers (Business Track) and developers (Developer Track). Top-class speakers from the “TYPO3 world”, as Kasper Skårhøj (TYPO3 Inventor), Robert Lemke (Chief Developer of TYPO3 version 5 and FLOW 3), Ernesto Baschny and Steffen Kamper (Release Managers of TYPO3 version 4.5) and other important people from the web developer scene were on-site. Sebastian Bergmann (Developer of PHPunit) and Poul-Henning Kamp (Inventor of Varnish Cache) also provided interesting lectures.

The highlight of the conference was the presentation of the first Alpha release of TYPO3 version 5. The participants had the opportunity to take a look at the new backend concept, the new template engine Fluid and the interfaces for extension development. We are sure that these new concepts are the future in the CMS sector. The surfaces are more intuitive and faster, the handling is made much easier.

The new features of the current version TYPO3 4.4 were also highlighted, including the completely revised frontend editing, as well as the OpenID integration.

The development in the mobile web sector was also a topic. Of course, also mobile e-commerce, which can make any online shop successful on mobile devices.

One thing that we can already promise you is that we will professionally and successfully implement the many interesting innovations for you also in the future…
