Our community involvement
We are committed to open-source systems and also act on the basis of their underlying principle: Giving back – contributing and giving something back to the project. We benefit from the developments of others, and therefore also wish to give something back through our contributions.
We have made various contributions to the open-source communities, usually with a focus on the TYPO3 CMS.
The Marketing Factory has been a Gold Member of the TYPO3 Association for many years. Some of our employees are active members of the various teams and initiatives within the TYPO3 cosmos, hold relevant positions on the Business Control Committee, and so contribute their knowledge and expertise. We also develop and maintain numerous publicly accessible TYPO3 extensions.
Virtually our entire team attends a wide range of TYPO3 community events, but we are also co-founders of the TYPO3 User Group Düsseldorf (TUGDUS) and are co-organisers of the Rhine-Ruhr TYPO3 camp. We often share our own knowledge and experience in talks or presentations, to enable others to benefit from what we have learned as well.
Some of our talks have also been posted on Speakerdeck or YouTube:
TYPO3 Business Control Committee
The Business Control Committee (BCC) is elected by the members of the TYPO3 Association to ensure greater transparency and manage budgets.
TYPO3 Marketing Team
You can contribute to TYPO3 as a non-developer as well – for instance in the marketing team!
The TYPO3 User Group (TUGDUS) meets regularly in Düsseldorf – on the third Monday of every month.
