Many of the agencies I'm in touch with are currently taking a close look at TYPO3 Neos in order to plan their transition to the new CMS once the 1.0 stable has been released. The concepts and APIs Neos provides are relatively stable now and the remaining work before the first major release is a matter of stabilisation and cleaning up (still a non trivial task). If you are serious about being ahead of the competition with TYPO3 Neos, now is the time to get involved!
Didn't find the time yet to read our documentation and try out Neos in earnest? Luckily, there's a shortcut for you: I'll be giving a 1-day introductory workshop about Neos on September 6th 2013 in Munich, Germany. And since that's right the day before TYPO3 Camp Munich takes place, why not combine the workshop with meeting some nice folks from the TYPO3 community? As for myself, I'm able to join the camp this time and for sure will propose one or more sessions about Flow and Neos.
This workshop in particular will be held in German - so if you don't speak that language or you need a little more than reading PHP code off the screen, you'll need to wait for the next workshop …
