WebDevStudios’ dedication to giving back to the WordPress community by actively participating in Five for the Future (#5ftf) continues to grow strong as we devote a full workday per month to the initiative. Our team continually finds ways to contribute to the open-source project that is WordPress. Whether it’s speaking at a WordCamp, developing a plugin that is later made available in the repository, or transcribing videos, we do what we can to give back to a community of folks who have given the web so much.
Below is a brief summary of some of the projects our team worked on in March. We thought it would be fun to present it to you Twitter style. See if you can spot a theme. Here’s a hint—it rhymes with Lutenberg.
By no means does the summary below include ALL of the time and effort that was donated to #5ftf last month. You would be amazed to see all that our team does for this initiative. At the end of the year, we’ll report our total hours donated. You can see how much we contributed in February in this wrap-up report.
If you’re interested in participating in #5ftf like us, read this blog post for some ways to do so. Keep up with our participation by following the hashtag #5ftf on Twitter. We greatly appreciate your tweets of support and re-tweets. This Friday, April 27, 2018, is our next company-wide #5ftf day. We hope you will participate along with us.
Released WP-Strava 1.5.0 today https://t.co/W9zFaHG8Mq with some fixes and improvements which closed 3 support requests (hopefully 4 before the weekend is over). Five For The Future at @webdevstudios is the best! #5ftf

I can’t tell you how great it is to work at a company that promotes giving back to the community that has given me so much. Today I’m working on planning for our local #WordPress meetup and submitting a talk for #WordCamp. Thanks, @webdevstudios #5ftf

Going to be weaving my way in and out of the @webdevstudios #Gutenberg plugin for #5FTF today! Looking forward to crossing a few more things off of our list! https://t.co/Yzt6mZzk5e pic.twitter.com/ta6hg0ALO0

So I’m putting some #Gutenberg edumacation as part of my #5ftf time for @webdevstudios. A topic I don’t deal with daily, in regards to development, but will definitely deal with as a whole in the near future.

I’m working on creating an accessibility-first component library and a tiny but tasteful CSS animation library. Github links and website URLs to come once there’s more to show!
