About Richard Haeser

My name is Richard Haeser and I'm living in the Netherlands with my wife and 3 kids. I'm a PHP developer for over 20 years now. I started to work with TYPO3 over 10 years ago and did quite some projects based on this awesome open source CMS. Besides development, I also did a lot of consultancy and helped companies getting the most out of TYPO3. As TYPO3 is using more and more Symfony packages, I got interested in Symfony as well which results in having expertise in PHP in general, but especially TYPO3 and Symfony.

Making users' job easier!

One thing I use in every project and every task I do: I want to know why a user has asked for a specific feature. I almost all cases, it seemed that if you ask a little bit more and after you have tried to think as the user, you will see that there might be (slightly) other solutions that are more sustainable and most of the time even easier to realise. So you can expect hard and maybe even "dumb" questions from me if you hire me. Based on your answers I can help you to solve the real issue and make the users' job easier.

What kind of things can I do for you?

In all the years I worked with PHP, TYPO3 and Symfony, I have learned a lot. Below a brief overview of the things I can help you with. Have a look at the services page for more information.


I started coding when I was 16. After more than 2 decades, I still love to code. Not only PHP or HTML / CSS code, but also JavaScript and CI scripts are things I do on a daily base.


One of the things I love to do is sharing my knowledge. I do that by my blogs and videos, but also by training other people.


As I want to help people to make their job easier, one of the things I do is consult companies to get the most out of their existing software or help them to develop the right things.


Besides giving training to developers, I also give presentations on on- and offline events. Do you need a speaker on your events? Just contact me to discuss the possibilities.


Not all knowledge can be certified or is even interesting to do certification. For the things I do on a daily base, I think it is important to show that you have the knowledge you pretend to have. That is why I have done a couple of certifications.

  • TYPO3 CMS Certified Integrator
  • TYPO3 CMS Certified Developer
  • TYPO3 CMS Certified Consultant
  • Certified Scrum Product Owner

Open Source projects

As you might know, I really love to work with open source. I have contributed on quite some open source projects. Some projects bigger, some projects are just a small open source project. Below just a couple of projects I contributed to.

  • TYPO3 Core Developer
  • Lead TYPO3 SEO Initiative
  • Lead TYPO3 Dashboard Initiative
  • Yoast SEO for TYPO3
