Sandra Pohl

Sandra Pohl

Hi, my name is Sandra and I am from Rosenheim in Oberbayern - as you may hear. Originally, I'm actually from the marketing communication area. Meanwhile, as a Professional Scrum Master and Product Owner at in2code, I take care of the management of large-scale projects - especially in the area of universities and colleges.

When managing a TYPO3 project, it is very important to me that future editors find their way quickly and easily in the backend and enjoy working with TYPO3. Unfortunately, this point is quickly neglected. I'd like users in the TYPO3 backend to only see the things they really need and intuitively know where to look to get to a specific destination.
