With extensibility, flexibility, scalability, TYPO3 gives you all the features and advantages of an enterprise content management system built on current, standards-based open source components. Supported by a vibrant, professional open source community, it has sweet bonuses above and beyond that, too.
Don’t waste your valuable time “reinventing the wheel”. For you as a developer, TYPO3 CMS is a proven, open source system that covers all the basic client needs out-of-the-box. With that out of the way, you can focus on innovation, delivering new features, great implementations, and experiences.
TYPO3 can create value instantly, letting you deliver features that represent significant challenges in other systems. It is built to keep your marketing department happy and deliver large high-performance multisite installations, with great SEO, authoring, translation, and editorial workflows. Management can rest assured that TYPO3 helps you on the compliance front with regular releases, robust permissions and security hardening, GDPR tooling, and up-to-date components.
The CMS is built on current, industry-standard open source components like PHP 7 and Symfony, and follows the PHP-FIG PSR standards. On docs.typo3.org, you will find comprehensive, detailed, in-depth documentation that includes coding examples and best practices to help your projects succeed.
When it’s time for an upgrade, TYPO3 itself helps you catch and fix issues long before they reach deployment. Admin tools include full upgrade documentation for every version and an extension scanner detecting code deprecations and outdated TYPO3 API calls outside of the core.
TYPO3’s architecture supports staging and deployment with strict “triple separation” of concerns: there is no business logic in the presentation layer, content is stored in the database, and both are completely separate from the backend codebase. Use your existing tools and agile workflow, but faster and more sustainably than before. In day-to-day operations, this means you can perform content- and code-staging, reskin a site without touching the business layer, and programmatically create update and migration scripts for reliable, automatic updates.
The TYPO3 community has your back. Joining the vibrant, international group of professionals who build and maintain TYPO3 CMS gives you the chance to build connections, learn, grow, and help others solve interesting challenges. Come meet your peers in the very active TYPO3 Slack channel, at local user group meetups, business and tech conferences and other events—from certification to snowboarding—throughout the year.
