Over 450 participants from all over the world found their way to this year’s TYPO3 Conference in Frankfurt am Main. Among them were developers and staff from AOE media. An important event at the conference was of course the presentation of the new User Interface from Jens Hoffmann and Björn Brockmann for TYPO3 Version 5. In our opinion, the new Version 5 Interface, together with its FLOW3-Basis, represents a quantum leap in the history of our favorite Open Source CMS and we are certainly going to offer financial support to its development work in the coming weeks and months.
As a recognized TYPO3 Platinum Sponsor, AOE media had its own stand at the conference this year. While of course presenting the company and its activities, this stand also served as a talent search and recruitment center for potential developers.
Meanwhile, at “T3Con Business Tracks”, another important feature of the conference, AOE media founder and managing director Kian T. Gould used three very successful AOE projects – Deutsche Qualitätssicherung (DQS), Zeitungsmarketing Gesellschaft (ZMG) and News Direct Distribution (NDD) Australia – to illustrate different options for representing and supporting company-critical processes as well as for dealing with issues that arise when linking TYPO3 to other software solutions within a business environment. Smart data input and export functions, validation, sophisticated connectivity with document management systems, Enterprise Resource Planning software or reporting tools, were just some of the many requirements of the successfully implemented solutions developed for these select clients, demonstrated by Mr. Gould in a most convincing presentation. In addition Daniel Pötzinger, CIO at AOE media, held a talk on "Publishing Optimization" for our client Cisco WebEx.
