          Ok. That’s actually good. So, next you could prepare a timeline (what you think it will take) and then ask for suggestions from the community. They would have a good idea about whether you will be able to finish it within the time itself.

    Started with Typo3. After going through the guidelines, I feel we must know web,cms and php thoroughly. Even the bugs that I looked is also related to this. I don’t have good knowledge on these subjects. So how to go about with this? Can you please share some good reference materials.


    • bithin 10:04 pm on February 29, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I have not looked into Typo3. Even I am hearing it for the first time 🙂 Thanks for sharing it. So, I will not be able to help on this. But, the other three requirement that you need to learn Typo3, I can help you on that. First thing that you should know before approaching a CMS is its architecture and before that you should know how to use it is properly used :). And to starting coding part it is important to know web technologies. I am sure that you will be having some basic idea about that after attending the RTE workshop.
      The best way to learn web technologies is to try make your own application using PHP-MySQL from the scratch. If you know OOP concept, try to coding PHP in OOP ( if you are new to PHP don’t go for it ). Side by side you make sure that you are making yourself familiar with Typo3.
      If you have any doubt you can post it here 🙂

      Article : http://avinashjoshi.co.in/blog/2011/05/01/blob/ , you can download this application and see through the code. You will be able to understand it much better than Typo3.

      Sowmya.. that’s good.. did you also look at the other org.. Review Board..?? Do check out that too and then let us know what you think about it..

      @bithin I had told her to select one of those easier ones.. that’s how she got this org..

      • Sowmya Ravidas 5:52 pm on March 1, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        No I did not. I tried to install, encountered a problem in between. Will do again. Neelima said Review board is mostly based on python.

          hmm… I feel a bit disappointed. I tried interacting with typo3 guys on IRC. I got replies. But what they said was “The only way that you can contribute at this point is donating €10k to association “.

          • pprahul 1:56 am on March 2, 2012 Permalink | Reply

            Hmm..That’s not fair!! Then stick on with Review board and see how it goes..

            • sowmya 5:44 pm on March 2, 2012 Permalink

              But… Sir asked me to do moin moin. I started with it.

            • pprahul 11:08 pm on March 2, 2012 Permalink

              Ok.. That’s good!! Go ahead with that one itself then..
