What are the T3Rookies?

WE are the TYPO3Rookies!

We are students and young people in apprenticeship and trainings in the TYPO3 world. At this stage we can give you a rough summary of our future wishes, activities, even about our sorrows and needs. Please take a look at the pdf below.

Everyone who is attending studies or trainings in a TYPO3 environment can join us.

You can reach us through this website, via our Facebook page, via Twitter, or directly taking contact to the people you may know.

Apprenticeship is a similar concept in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. It is for this reason that we first decided to launch the T3Rookies project in German and that we would like to reach the T3Rookies in these countries.

However, if you wish to have something similar in your country or if you are interested in working on this project too, please contact us, we will do our best to help you!

Please remember that this is a very new project, therefore we are sorry for not being able to provide you with more information, but this is just a start and we will continue providing you with content and news.

The T3Rookies project is alive thanks to the "active contributors" and we would be very happy to welcome you to join us. So, come on!

What is your advantage as a T3Rookie?

Very simple - you will become a member of the best community in the world - the TYPO3 community. You will get to know like-minded people and will find new friends.

The T3Rookies are a part of the TYPO3 family und you will find support (take a look here Who is Who?) for your daily work, for legal matters you might have, and someone will answer your questions regarding advanced training or apprenticeship. This means that whatever it is about, there will be someone who can help you.

What is your advantage in supporting the T3Rookies?

We don't know who you are: you might be a company that trains apprentices, an agency, a TYPO3 enthusiast, a teacher, or an instructor at a university. But for sure you are working with TYPO3!

Perhaps you are looking for new employees or you would like to integrate your students or trainees into this project - which can save you a lot of work. You know best why you are reading these sentences.

All in all: we need enthusiastic and well trained people. Help us - we will help you.

Get in touch with us.
