About this Event

Invitation to Fluid 3.0 workshop

Dear TYPO3 community,

You are invited to join the Fluid 3.0 workshop in Aarhus, Denmark, on June 20th to 22nd where Systime will once again host a TYPO3 event. The focus of the workshop is:

  • Convert all source code to PHP 7.2 minimum and implement strict types. This is why the name of the workshop is Fluid 3.0 - this conversion is the basis for the next major release.
  • A major refactoring of the internal components to unify Fluid’s patterns. Currently Fluid uses a variety of classes to do very similar things - the goal of this task is to unify this into a smaller set of more generic components that are able to perform all the current tasks in Fluid, and much more.
  • Improvements for documentation and documentation generating. First of all, Fluid needs better, dedicated documentation and new documentation is required for the new capabilities added by the refactoring of Fluid’s internal components. Second, Fluid is capable of automatically generating documentation in the form of XSD files and being in the same location provides us with a great opportunity to improve this feature to work better with the way documentation is presented on the TYPO3 web site.

Sharing knowledge about Fluid’s internal components. The refactoring that will take place is the ideal opportunity to learn more about not just how Fluid does things in current versions but also learn how the refactored API will work and how it can be extended.

This means that we are mostly looking for the following types of people to join:

  1. Developers comfortable with PHP 7.2 strict types and refactoring and who are interested in developing the new and improved internal API of Fluid.
  2. Non-developers with writing skills (English) and a desire to help improve the user-facing documentation for Fluid.
  3. Anyone involved in current documentation process in TYPO3 who wants to help guide the effort to improve Fluid’s documentation with a shared vision.

There will be two “tracks” - type strictness and refactoring on one side and documentation on the other, then towards the end the two tracks will converge to discuss and improve Fluid’s automated documentation capabilities.

Doors open on June 20th 8:00 and there will be a short introduction at 9:00, doors close again on June 22nd around 15:00. Other than this there is no fixed schedule. Lunch will be provided all three days but dinner is only provided on the 20th and 21st. It will be possible to stay late in evenings (and there may, just may, be served some beer brewed by Claus on Friday evening). Hotel and travel costs can be reimbursed. Naturally there will be coffee and snacks enough to keep a small town awake and snacking for three days.

There is room in the budget for approximately 15 participants but physical room for more who wish to participate without reimbursement. If we are unable to gather enough participants we may reschedule to a later time.

If you want to join us - and I hope you do - please add in your message a tiny bit about yourself, which track you would like to join (or both!) and whether or not you will need reimbursement for travel and hotel.

Hope to see you there,

Claus Due, the Fluid guy.
