As if giving back to WordPress and the community wasn’t cool enough, our next Five for the Future (#5ftf) event is happening tomorrow, Friday, October 3rd, and the event will include a whopping seven new WebDevStudios (WDS) employees. WDS is growing, and we’re bringing along some interesting talent with us to participate in this WordPress initiative designed to encourage WordPress companies to donate 5% of their time to contributing to the open-source project.
The thing about #5ftf is that everyone is invited to the party. You don’t have to work for WDS to participate. Anyone can get involved—WordPress users, developers, fans, and even you! Read this for some ways you can be a part of the #5ftf movement. Follow the hashtag #5ftf tomorrow on Twitter and get a gander of what our team is doing for their part.
Curious to see what kind of work our team completed for our last Five for the Future Friday? Take a look at the collection of tweets below for just a sample of our contributions.
It’s #5ftf day! Thanks @webdevstudios

It’s #5FTF at @webdevstudios again! Today I’ll be working on a @Pokemon TCG database and blogging about how I’m solving the multiple card printings problem.

Another awesome #5ftf with @WebDevStudios. I'll be testing out some super cool ACF/Gutenberg work spearheaded by @coreymcollins, then on to working on issues for a Gatsby/WordPress theme with GraphQL started by @GregRickaby. Did I mention it's also Friday!

This is my second #5ftf working on Gatsby and the second time it's kicking my ass. I was able to get a site up and running last time and I'm just trying to get images working but I keep running into various issues. Learning a lot but also frustrating.

Today @webdevstudios for #5FTF, I'm learning more about filters and working on the Gutenberg Page Unit Test Plugin. I hit some blockers a week or two ago and hope to get past them.
