Paying It Forward with Five for the Future

Excitement fills the air as we make our way toward another company-wide Five for the Future day tomorrow, March 1, 2019. Since 2014, WebDevStudios has passionately participated in Five for the Future, a WordPress initiative created to encourage agencies like ours to dedicate 5% of company time back to this open-source project and its community.

I think a good rule of thumb that will scale with the community as it continues to grow is that organizations that want to grow the WordPress pie (and not just their piece of it) should dedicate 5% of their people to working on something to do with core — be it development, documentation, security, support forums, theme reviews, training, testing, translation or whatever it might be that helps move WordPress mission forward.

-Matt Mullenweg

Our last participation in Five for the Future took place on February 1st. You can see below what sort of tasks we tackled and challenges we accomplished. Be sure to follow the hashtag #5ftf on Twitter tomorrow to keep up with our contributions in real time.

You can participate, too. Read this blog post for ways to get involved with #5ftf. Paying it forward leads to good karma and benefits everyone. Plus, it just feels good! We hope you join us.
