10+ Women of TYPO3 Who Code, Design, and Inspire!

TYPO3 Women & Girls rocks at TYPO3 community! Today, I’m proud to write first-time in the TYPO3 history blog about T3-Womaniya ;) Are you interested to know who the top active TYPO3 women in the community are? Here we go!

TYPO3 community always respects, appreciates, and motivates women/girls to join and contribute to the awesome TYPO3 Opensource project. Yesterday, by reading a women empowerment article, I got the idea of this blog to write a unique article on TYPO3 women. Because, here in India, I can see drastic changes as more and more women/girls are joining the IT-programming industry. Before years, IT fields were far away for Indian women. But, now the time has changed, also the TYPO3 community is getting more women empowerment.

This blog is dedicated to all TYPO3 women and girls who are working hard to give back to the TYPO3 community, and we appreciate your precise time & commitment #T3Kudos

Well, I don’t want to write why and how women empowerment is important in today’s world. But all I wish that all women and girls must participate in making better culture & community with their remarkable work! I’m always trying to connect women in TYPO3 like;

“Inspiring Women to Connect TYPO3”

While we can’t mention every gal in the TYPO3 business, the following ladies are the stars of the TYPO3 landscape.
