Tools David can’t live without:
b13 Founder and CEO, David, is a reluctant administrative wizard, father (of three children and all of the b13 family), and someone you’ll meet if you’re thinking about working with our agency. Somehow, he still finds time to be constantly learning new skills and is an influential part of our cutting-edge frontend practice. He loves lightning fast websites, inline CSS, and taking templating to new levels. He loves hamburgers a little bit more.

If you need to publish or update content in multiple languages at the same time, or involve others to sign off or edit content before publishing, then content staging is the solution you’re looking for. Did you know TYPO3 solves this out of the box with the Workspaces module?
At b13, we’re often approached by CMOs and CEOs disgruntled by escalating costs. What seems like a relatively “cheap” CMS or software solution can often come with hidden or long-term expenses—like multiple relaunches, jumps in licensing fees, or pricey additions. As an agency committed to free and open source software like TYPO3, we’re dedicated to helping companies make forward-thinking decisions for their content strategy. In the process, we’ve identified some best practices for making smart, cost-effective decisions for your CMS.
TYPO3’s separation of content and code is one of its major strengths. TYPO3 saves content in containers called content elements, which you can stack in content areas on a page record to create pages. The different parts of this highly configurable setup include “page types” (defined by the “doktype” field value in the pages database table record), a “backend layout” configuration, and possibly a third, separate “frontend layout” configuration value. We combine these components in various ways to enable different scenarios and desired outcomes.
A content type for TYPO3’s page module is defined by a number of configurations. We’ll go through the seven steps you need to implement to create and enable the content type we want and the UI elements needed to support it for content editors.
A slow website is loosing you business. Here's why performance of your website matters – and what you can do to improve yours. We found on a recent relaunch of a client website that the search ranking for their most important keywords significantly improved just by optimizing website performance.
b13 will be part of the official TYPO3 Project presence at DMEXCO19 in Cologne (Hall 8.1, Booth D020). On September 11 and 12, three of us will be there showing off how great TYPO3 CMS is in 2019. We’re on a mission to convince people who haven’t tried out TYPO3 in a while to give it another look. We’ll talk with one and all about how we can help you solve your digital business challenges, too. Join us for a Kölsch beer in the Domstadt!
