The TYPO3 East Europe, in short T3EE, was bord out of our wish to make TYPO3 stronger in the Central and Eastern part of our continent, to promote it between the programmers and web agencies and to showcase it to potential clients. We also wanted to create the opportunity for the TYPO3 community from the region, like Romania, Ukraine, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia, to get together and to connect to the larger international TYPO3 community, to share knowledge and to generate business cooperation.
The idea of organizing T3EE came in 2012 during our annual TYPO3 Usergroup Romania meetup, which Arxia was organizing in Cluj-Napoca since 2010. Having grown the local event to over 40 attendees, all from the Romanian web agencies, we decided that it is time to go bigger and to prove ourselves as an active community that can contribute significantly to TYPO3.
The first edition of the TYPO3 East Europe has proven to be a great success, with over 100 attendees from all over Europe, great talks, great interactions and intensity of social events that contributed to creating an aura for T3EE, as "the event where you need to be".
Since then, T3EE happened each year and our friends from Target-E joined forces to co-organize the event for the last several editions.
T3EE is always more than just two days of intensive presentations and interactions. Each time we have organized activities that are targeted either to promote TYPO3 in the region or to strengthen the relations between TYPO3 community members. Each year, we have promoted the event actively in the Romanian IT community, presented T3EE at other local events, promoted it through articles in the specialized local press and invited as speakers Romanian and regional leaders in technology, academia, consultancy and even leadership development.
Among the actions that we did along the time as side events, we remember fondly:
- A half-day set of presentations introducing TYPO3 to the Informatics college of Babes-Bolyai University in 2013
- The "TYPO3 Marathon" of 2014, comprising one day in which speakers from Germany, the Netherlands and Romania presented TYPO3 to university students and local IT industry in various locations around the town
- The "TYPO3 University Day" gathering representatives from the universities of Germany, Austria and the Netherlands who were using TYPO3 for a long time and universities from Romania, from Cluj and Timisoara, learning about the benefits of introducing TYPO3 in the presentation and administration processes of the institution
- The "Transylvania Tour" one-day trip that took us with a hired bus to visit great natural and historical places in our region, such as the Turzi Gorges, the Turda Salt Mine, the historical fortress of Alba Iulia and the beautiful natural setting and great traditional Hungarian cuisine of Colțești
- The culinary and entertaining tour of our beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca, an event that we organized two times, in different ways, so that even those who already attended were thrilled to discover so many new sights and experiences
TYPO3 East Europe was generously supported each year by many renowned TYPO3 agencies, such as JWeiland, DKD, Pixelant, ..............
Arxia was constantly among the Gold sponsors, joined by Target-E for the latest editions and helped by the other Romanian agencies working with TYPO3, Reea and Decode.
We hope to have many more editions organized from now on and to bring more and more TYPO3 community members to our beautiful city.

Once more T3EE proven to be the place to be for everyone, from East and West. For our attendees from Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia it was their first TYPO3 event. Our colleagues delivered two presentation - Alina Fleșer talked about the flexibility of TYPO3 extensions and Daniel Homorodean shared a vision about the future of our work and our organizations in the digital revolution that we are now part of.
This T3EE edition was very playful - our team prepared well the social games that kept everyone engaged during the sessions, the breaks and of course the main party. Our colleague Daniel Homorodean presented tips & tricks for the commercialization of SaaS products and how to transform tensed moments between people into opportunities through "Crucial Conversations".

This year T3EE was preceded by a day of "TYPO3 Marathon", when our team and our guests run arround the town presenting TYPO3 in various locations. It was the "edition of the colors", from t-shirts to drinks and to badges. Our colleagues held two presentations: Emil Mercea showcased the technical mastering of 3D planning in the browser with WebGL showcasing our PlanningWiz floor planner and Daniel Homorodean presented "A3 Thinking", a logical and structured approach to problem solving adopted by Lean organizations around the world.
Over 100 TYPO3 community members gathered from all Europe. The Romanian presence was strong but the response from the West, especially Germany and the Netherlands, was amazing! The future of the TYPO3 project was in high debate, with Neos - the promissing child of the day, keeping everyone excited. A great first edition of T3EE, establishing the strong tradition that carries on.
