The summer holiday season is finally over and so the TYPO3 events season is in full swing. Take the chance, participate in one and make new friends and meet old ones. So take your time on and think about a trip to one and / or another event.
In the last weeks the TYPO3camp in Munich made the start as every right at the end of the bavarian summer school holidays. The last days where “dominated” by the TYPO3 Agency Meetup Days. But don’t bother, there are many many other events coming.
TYPO3 Events in 2017
TYPO3 University Days (Darmstadt, Germany)
The first upcoming event are the TYPO3 University Days in Darmstadt on September 27th and 28th. This is a two day conference focusing on the needs of universities.
Unfortunately the ticket sale is already closed. But if you have a ticket, you can meet me there. I will hold a talk about the challenges, if you are facing TYPO3 performance issues and where to start out.
Date: September 27th – 28th 2017
TYPO3camp Hamburg (Germany)
Just one day later the TYPO3camp in Hamburg is taking place. The TYPO3camp in Hamburg was the first one of it’s kind. After some years break the organizers are starting out with fresh energy in a new location. Tickets are still available.

MEET TYPO3 Vienna (Austria)
“MEET TYPO3” is a conference for TYPO3 users and interested CEOs, marketing managers and decision-makers in IT. With one keynote and six talks you will receive much valuable input. There will also be room to make new contacts and to get one-to-one support at experts desks.
TYPO3 Agency Meetup Day (Vienna, Austria)
Just one day later the last TYPO3 Agency Meetup Day for this year is also held in Vienna (Austria). This is organized by the TYPO3 GmbH and invites all agencies, who are member in the TYPO3 Assciation. The goal is to report what’s happening in the TYPO3 world and to gather feedback from the agencies.
The Agency Meetup Days were held in several places, but your participation is not limited to a certain country or location.
Date: October 13th, 2017
TYPO3camp RheinRuhr (Essen, Germany)
The TYPO3camp RheinRuhr in Essen is takes place in the “Unperfekthaus” in Essen. It is a very unique location with a great service and cool rooms and spaces. Last year I attended this camp and really enjoyed the atmosphere.
Date: November 3rd – 5th, 2017
T3EE TYPO3 East Europe 2017 (Cluj, Romania)
This is the 5th camp in Cluj, which is organized by the romanian TYPO3 usergroup. All people, to whom I spoke, were very impressed by the people, the program and the spirit. They all would recommend to participate at this event!

Tickets: You can book tickets directly on the website, section “Tickets”
Outlook to TYPO3 Events in 2018
After a “short christmas break” there are three events in the first quarter of 2018.
TYPO3camp Mitteldeutschland (Dresden, Germany)
This TYPO3camp is a newcomer! For the first time a TYPO3camp is taking place in Dresden. It is organized by the TYPO3 usergroup Dresden. The location is the “Deutsches Hygienemuseum” right in the center of Dresden between the “Frauenkirche” and “Großer Garten”.
So it’s (also) up to you to make it a great event! Grab a ticket (if available), bring your personality and nice topics :-)
Date: January 25th – 27th, 2018
Tickets: Sale not started at the time of writing. Check their website
TYPO3 Snowboard Tour 2018 (Canazei, Italy)
If you do not get enough from the TYPO3 community, you can afterwards just head over to the beautiful scenery of the dolomites and join the TYPO3 Snowboard Tour. The cool thing about the snowboard tour is that it is not only about sports, but also about code. Many concepts and ideas derived from this combination.
TYPO3camp Venlo (Netherlands)
An international TYPO3camp is again organized in Venlo (Netherlands). The thing I like about this camp is, that it is advertised as an “international” camp, so the main language is “english”. This means that it is inclusive to all, not only to the local residents. (Too bad, that I did make it there, in the last years).
BTW: Tickets are already available. If you book until Dec. 31st, you will get early bird prices, which means a discount of about 30%.
Date: March 8th – 10th, 2018
You should really attend at least one TYPO3 event within the next year. Why? Wolfgang Wagner writes about the reasons here: “What you gain by taking part in TYPO3 events”
Looking at the locations and dates, there should be at least one, which you can visit regarding the distance. If not, there are two possibilities:
Wait for the upcoming events in 2018 and make it a “good intention” for 2018. There will be many more events, like camps, developer days or maybe other new event formats.
Join a usergroup
In many regions there are usergroups, which deal with TYPO3 topics on a regular (mostly monthly) basis. A (not complete) listing is here: https://typo3.org/community/typo3-user-groups/If no group in your region is listed there, you can ask on Slack whether somebody knows something about a group near you.
