TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer, 3rd edition (English)

Exam study guide for the official TCCD certification of the TYPO3 Association

About the Book

The TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer (TCCD) exam is part of the official certification program of the TYPO3 Association. By passing the challenging exam, candidates prove that they have specific knowledge and skills needed to work with TYPO3 in a professional way that follows best practices.

Officially certified TYPO3 developers benefit from their achievement in many ways. Agencies who employ certified experts demonstrate that their team has the knowledge and experience to build TYPO3 projects of all sizes and complexities.

The TCCD certification covers topics such as programming basics, package management, general TYPO3 knowledge, TYPO3 Core architecture and APIs, general extension architecture, building plugins/modules with and without Extbase, templating (Fluid), Security, and more.

This study guide contains example questions for all topics and reflects the style and structure of the real exam. The revised and updated 3rd edition of the TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer eBook contains example questions, possible answers and detailed explanations of which answers are correct and why. The chapters are in-line with the official syllabus to ensure that readers can prepare for the test in the best possible fashion.

The study guide helps you to prepare for and master the exam. It does not guarantee that you will pass, but it significantly increases your chances!

Michael Schams​​ is a member of the TYPO3 Education Committee and has also successfully published the TYPO3 Extbase book and the TYPO3 CMS Certified Integrator study guide (to prepare for the TCCI exam).
