Five for the Future: Midyear Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the year—time to dish out all the cool things WebDevStudios (WDS) did for the WordPress initiative Five for the Future (#5ftf) as we wrap up the midyear and head into a new season. For those who are still in the dark about #5ftf, it is an agency commitment to donate 5% of company time to giving back to the WordPress community and projects that benefit WordPress Core. Early this year, WDS announced our dedication to contribute one workday per month company-wide to #5ftf. So far this year, we have invested 434 hours to WordPress.

Our July was jam-packed with client work, a good problem to have, and so we missed our day of contribution. But below, you’ll find some ways we contributed in June. Tomorrow, August 31st, we dedicate our day to #5ftf. Care to join us? Read this blog post for ideas on ways you can contribute, too. Follow us on Twitter and the hashtag #5ftf to stay updated.

And Senior Backend Engineer, Jeremy Ward, managed to contribute even more time by participating in WP-CLI Hack Day.  You can learn more about his participation and contribution in this blog post.
