WebDevStudios (WDS) is ready for another Five for the Future day! All daylong tomorrow, Friday, June 26th, the WDS team will devote our entire workday to giving back to WordPress and the community in a variety of ways, such as contributing to the core, building a plugin, developing a WordCamp or WordPress meetup talk, captioning a WordCamp talk video, and in many more other ways.
Giving back feels good, and being a part of an open-source project like WordPress gives us a sense of camaraderie and kinship. As a leading WordPress design and development agency, we feel compelled to be a part of the Five for the Future initiative by dedicating 5% of our company’s time to giving back to WordPress. It is our responsibility and pleasure.
So what does it mean when WDS hosts a Five for the Future day? It means that the contributions of our team members are sponsored by our WordPress agency because participation takes place during company time. That’s just one of the many things our staff enjoys about working at WDS. You can join in the fun by, one, participating also. Read this blog post for ideas. Two, we’re hiring! What better way to participate in Five for the Future than by joining our family? Check out our current open positions.
Take a look at our participation from last month, which was split into two days due to client work. We can’t thank our team enough for their devotion to Five for the Future, and especially to those teammates who were flexible about delaying their allotted Five for the Future day by a few days. Keep up with our contributions tomorrow on Twitter. Just follow the hashtag #5ftf.
Decided that instead of API work for #5FTF I’m going to try and get more work done on my theme for Genesis called Groovy 1976 and working on my World Builder plugin if time permits. Thanks again to @webdevstudios & @maintainn for giving back to the #wordpress community!

Wrapping up my #5FTF at @webdevstudios, I put together some awesome features on my Display Exif Data plugin including global field disables, remove empty fields, and made improvements to the frontend styles. pic.twitter.com/knh5OqOsGq

(1/3) Ending my #5ftf day here @webdevstudios. I started to create a web app (for now) to show a concept of a Covid Contact Tracing Mobile App. The idea is to notify the users if they came in contact, using their location + time, with a user who later turned out to be positive. pic.twitter.com/3B5bVSsNZq

Got to not only learn how Gutenberg block InspectorControls work (aka block sidebar), but also added them to the WP-Strava plugin with a 2.3.1 release. Paying it forward via #5FTF thanks to @webdevstudios ❤️🚴👟 https://t.co/W9zFaHG8Mq
