Contao Two Month Review May and June 2020

by Blair Winans – Community

We are watching TV

A very good day to you. We welcome you to our new television program, and hope you get excellent reception.

The Contao family has grown under the name Contao TV and will help us to spread the good news of Contao all over the world.

Janosch and Joe Ray have developed the basic framework, with kind support from the Contao community and as part of the official events of the Contao Association.

We celebrated the premiere on Wednesday, 17 June 2020, at 15.00 sharp with the Contao Show. The hosts of the Contao Show are Christian and Dennis. They offer the audience a mix of current Contao news & practical knowledge about our favorite CMS and give a good overview of the Contao lifestyle. For them, Contao is a matter of the heart, because Contao gives them the opportunity to work freely and independently and to realize their ideas.

If you were not able to join the live stream on YouTube, the Contao Show is exclusively available to members of the Contao Academy and members of the Contao Association.

Besides the Contao Show, other formats are already being considered and planned:

First of all, the Contao Tech Talks where new features, ideas and possibilities of Contao will be presented regularly. In this format, the focus is on developer topics. It starts in July with a Tech Talk of the Contao core team about the current Contao version and the many new features it offers.

We'll also have Contao Online Colleges to impart knowledge and know-how. A number of online webinars are already planned. You will get more information about them on the [Contao project website] ( in the next few weeks.

We have also planned to support the Contao-Roundtables in the event that they are held online.

Your ideas for formats or topics can be sent to , and we look forward to hearing them.

So turn on the TV or start your computer, and enjoy Contao TV.
