Let’s Talk Diversity
Recently, WDS Frontend Engineer, JC Palmes, participated as a member of a panel examining diversity for a series called “Tuesday Trainings” at WordPress.org. In this video discussion, the panel addresses how to better encourage and support diversity at WordPress Meetups, WordCamps, and in the broader WordPress community. You can see what JC has to say by watching the video below.
Not only is Technical Project Manager, Alex Juchniewicz, passionate about WordPress, he’s also passionate about mental health. In fact, he blogged about it for the WDS blog, which was recognized in the Master WP Weekly newsletter.
Additionally, Support Engineer, Chrispian Burks, was among a list of WordPress pros who revealed which WordPress page builders they felt were the best. You can read about what Chrispian has to recommend at WhatSayTheExperts.com.
Last, but not least, Backend Engineer, Michael Panaga, captured the attention of the WordPress community when he blogged about and announced the release of the WDS custom block scaffolding tool, @webdevstudios/block.
