Was March a blur for you, too, or was that just us? Not only did companies across the globe scramble to shift their organizations to a remote work scenario, but those who had not previously invested much into their online presence are now focused on doing so. On top of that, highly anticipated WordPress 5.4 was released on March 31st. Yes, last month was a busy one for eCommerce, WordPress, and WebDevStudios (WDS). As such, April is gearing up to be a busy one for us, too, as our website expertise is in high demand. Here’s the latest company news from WDS.
WDS Backend Engineer, Michael Panaga, played a major role in contributing to the WordPress project. He is featured in the latest version’s credits as a Noteworthy Contributor. See below.
