At WebDevStudios (WDS), we don’t stop giving back, including our constant participation in Five for the Future. Whether it’s speaking at or organizing a WordCamp event, or participating in a number of open-source projects, our team is always working toward making the web a better place.
Tomorrow, Friday, August 2nd, is another day that we will be giving back to WordPress in order to improve the internet and empower the WordPress community. As a company, WDS is devoting our entire workday to Five for the Future. And if you are unaware of what this initiative is, please read Matt Mullenweg’s blog post on the purpose behind it.
As he states, five percent can add up to a lot. Add to that the talent behind our engineers, support technicians, project managers, business development team, and executives, and our contribution to this cause is that much more impactful.
How? Take a look at some of the ways our team has donated their time and efforts in the past months. Mind you, this is just a sampling of their contribution, but as you will see, it’s pretty impressive.
You can join us on Five for the Future Friday, too! Here are some ways to do that. Or, simply follow the hashtag #5ftf on Twitter to see what our team members are up to and tweet them if you’re interested in pitching in. Let’s all high-five to Five for the Future.

I built a boilerplate! 🙀 Gulp, Grunt, Webpack are not required to make websites. With @npmjs scripts you can compile Sass, compress images, sprites, JS and more.

Building out a custom Beaver Builder module to list LEGO sets I’d like to own, or do own(not many). I’ve got my trusty Saturn V rocket here to inspire. 🚀@webdevstudios #5ftf #WDSLunch pic.twitter.com/Qqumm9HlXy

#5FTF day at @webdevstudios is the best… Helped some people out via forum support (some submitted feature requests 😍). Then I'll be gettin' WP-Strava prepped to work with the new @Strava API refresh tokens

UPDATE: #5FTF at @webdevstudios: I created a plugin that generates a scaffolding page for displaying Gutenberg blocks. When the plugin is deactivated the page will be removed. Step 1 complete 🤓. Step 2 involves creating layouts. pic.twitter.com/QHZF5oK6YN
