About the Book

The TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer (TCCD) exam is part of the official certification programme of the TYPO3 Association. It allows developers to prove their skills in implementing TYPO3 extensions in a state-of-the-art way and in writing clean code by following the TYPO3 Coding Guidelines (CGL) and best practices.

Officially certified TYPO3 developers benefit from the certification programme in many ways. Agencies demonstrate that their team has the knowledge and experience to build TYPO3 projects of all sizes and complexities. Freelancers can produce proof of their skills to write professional code according to the high TYPO3 standards.

The certification covers topics such as programming basics, general extension architecture, the TYPO3 core architecture and APIs, building plugins and modules using the Extbase framework, the Fluid templating engine including Viewhelpers and Widgets, security aspects and more.

This book covers all topics for TYPO3 v9 exams and reflects the style and structure of the real exam. The revised and updated 2nd edition of the TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer book contains 200 example questions, possible answers and detailed explanations of which answers are correct and why. The questions were selected in close cooperation with the TYPO3 Education Committee.

Michael Schams​​ is a well-known, long-term member of the TYPO3 community with many years of professional experience. He also published the TYPO3 Extbase book and the TYPO3 CMS Certified Integrator study guide (for TCCI exams). Armin Vieweg is not only a long-term member of the TYPO3 Education Committee, but also a highly experienced and professional TYPO3 developer.
