TypoScript - A quick overview

This introduction is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of how TypoScript works. In other words the goal is not to just help you make it work, but to make sure that you end up knowing why and how it works.

At the end of this tutorial, you will not have a complete TYPO3 CMS-powered website, but you should feel confident about how to get there.

Going through this tutorial is helpful for understanding other tutorials, like the Sitepackage.
