Maybe you’ve already heard of TYPO3 Flow, if not i can tell you that it is a PHP web application framework which is open-source, free and was created by members of the TYPO3 community. While initially it was known as FLOW3 now it has been renamed to TYPO3 Flow and is part of the great TYPO3 family alongside TYPO3 CMS and TYPO3 Neos.
You might wonder why am I talking about TYPO3 Flow. Well, lately I’ve been working more and more with this framework and i must admit that I like it very much. Actually so much that i couldn’t imagine now writing an application with any other tool that’s out there.
Some neat things that TYPO3 offers:
- fully MVC architecture
- Aspect Oriented Programming
- Domain-Driven Design
- Dependency Injection
- Test Driven Development
- Signals and slots concept
- the Fluid templating engine (Oh yeah!)
I’ve learned alot in the last month about these and i want to share some of these things with my readers. So in the next months you will see several Flow related articles, tutorials, tips & tricks on my blog. I’ve gathered all this knowledge while working on a big personal project which will be the subject of my future posts at some point. Working on this application with TYPO3 Flow was a truly inspiring endeavour for me and i can’t wait to work with and learn more about Flow.
And if we speak about inspiring things then i also wanted to let you know about an upcoming TYPO3 Flow conference called the Inspiring Conference which is held in Germany (Kolbermoor) between 28-29 March 2014. It is a meeting place for TYPO3 Flow developers, freelancers, companies and everyone who works with this framework. Obviously i already have my ticket to this conference and if you’re also going then maybe we can grab a beer and talk about Flow, TYPO3 or any other thing.
Meantime, check out this cool video about TYPO3 Flow & Inspiring Conference:
