The age limit of 35 is set to create a vibrant and balanced environment at TYPO3 Surfcamp Fuerteventura. We recognize the immense value of age diversity in teams and the broader tech community. By inviting participants primarily under the age of 35, we aim to bridge the gap between experience and fresh perspectives we are currently seeing in the community as a whole.

In the TYPO3 community, we have noticed that a significant portion of active participants is above the age of 35. While their expertise is invaluable, we also acknowledge the importance of including younger generations who bring innovative ideas and contemporary approaches to the table. By fostering age diversity, we create a collaborative space where seasoned professionals and emerging talents can interact, learn from each other, and collectively contribute to the TYPO3 ecosystem. With the TYPO3 Surfcamp we want to reach out to the younger members of our community and create an event that fosters lasting connections for the next decades of success of TYPO3.

By nurturing a multi-generational community, we ensure that TYPO3 remains relevant, adaptable, and continues to evolve. Embracing age diversity enhances our capacity for creative problem-solving, encourages cross-generational knowledge sharing, and supports the sustainability of the TYPO3 project.

For those over 35, we encourage participation in other TYPO3 events that align with different themes. Consider attending TYPO3 Developer Days for in-depth technical discussions or exploring events like T3Board for a sports-oriented experience.
