The F3X conference was held in the small town of Kolbermoor south of Munich and organised by Techdivision. Sacha Storz, leader of the TYPO3 editorial team and employee of Techdivision, was mainly responsible for getting this event of the ground. The conference brought 170 attendants to the Kesselhaus in Kolbermoor. The location is an absolutely great renovated building from the industrial era.

It was quite amazing to me that the event brought in so many people. Only three people in the crowd were unknown with TYPO3. There were lots of familiar faces from our TYPO3 family around. In that sense a typical TYPO3 event with the warmth, friendliness and enthusiasm so well-known in the TYPO3 community.
Karsten talks FLOW3
I was so brave as to attend almost all talks if only for some of the pics in this article. The presentations were of a pretty technical level, not always to be grasped by a community manager. Despite the technical content of the talks, I was really happy to talk to several known people, to get acquinted with some new guys and gain some better understanding of FLOW3. Robert also revealed that Amadeus is using FLOW3. This has been under a Non Disclosure Agreement for a long time. Amadeus is a leading transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry. Amadeus is a proud user of the FLOW3 framework.
Unfortunately I could not stay for the Social Event, that is so characteristic for a TYPO3 event. I had to reach Wiesbaden in the evening to be fit and aware for the upcoming typo3.org relaunch on Monday, April 2.
The future of FLOW3 as basis for our new CMS and as stand alone framework look very promising. I personally am looking forward to start a planet (blog aggregation) based on FLOW3 with a bootstrap backend as soon as our design team can deliver a layout for that. Thanks to Christopher Hlubek for setting that up. The FLOW3 conference itself will be in English next year and of course that will mean a much higher number of attendees.
