We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. -Winston Churchill
Giving back is important to our team at WebDevStudios. That’s why you’ll find us leading local WordPress Meetup groups, speaking and volunteering at WordCamps, and of course, participating in the WordPress initiative Five for the Future. We aim to dedicate 5% of our company time to giving back to the WordPress community. After all, it’s the community that powers and inspires this open-source platform.
Below is a sample of some of the ways our team gave to Five for the Future in August. Tomorrow, September 21, our entire company is dedicating the whole workday to Five for the Future, also known as #5ftf. Follow that hashtag and us on Twitter to see what we’re building and how we’re giving back. You’re also invited to join us because anyone can participate in Five for the Future. Read this article for ideas on how to contribute.
It’s the best day of the month – Five for the Future! I’m going to be digging into open @wpcli issues, working on new presentations, and putting together demos for my local meetup. #5ftf

After about 2 years of solid steadiness and stability, I have updated my Social Media Shortcodes plugin. Removed some dead sites, but mostly code cleanup. https://t.co/tdHKRRnsbE #5FTF
