Here I am: Marc Willmann

HEY, EVERYTHING'S SHINY. SO FINE NEW.

After this website has been promoting my services as a TYPO3 freelancer for many years, the relaunch was long overdue. Since I changed to a permanent position at one of the perhaps best employers ever since 2015, this website is now completely private.

On my old site there were many manuals for TYPO3; most of them referred to old TYPO3 versions and are not easily applicable to current TYPO3 versions anymore. For this reason I moved the outdated articles to virtual Nirvana. For one or the other post I plan to update the manual.

As the leader of the Education Committee of the TYPO3 Association I give insights into the community work and the current projects of the Education Committee, including the TYPO3 certification program.

If you came across this page while looking for professional support for your TYPO3 project: Yes, I am still happy to help and, together with my colleagues at F7, I am pulling coals out of the fire. The contact form is here :-)
