Not only are rising summer temperatures in the forecast as July comes to an end, but there is another Five for the Future Friday scheduled in ours. Tomorrow, the final day of July, WebDevStudios (WDS) will devote the day to giving back to WordPress. This open-source platform continues to evolve, with a new release set to launch next month, and the team at WDS enjoys being a part of that evolution and the community behind it.
While the mission of our WordPress agency is the success of our clients, WDS team members appreciate being able to take a day to step away from projects and do something to help improve and strengthen the power of WordPress, which, in turn, also benefits our clients and all who own and use WordPress websites. The whole point behind Five for the Future is to donate 5% of company time to WordPress. Our team does this in a myriad of ways, including:
- Contributing to the WordPress core
- Developing a free plugin
- Creating a WordPress Meetup or WordCamp talk
- Organizing a WordPress Meetup or WordCamp
- Captioning a WordCamp talk
Take a look at how our team contributed last month. Follow WDS on Twitter and the hashtag #5ftf to see how we contribute tomorrow. Cheers to another Five for the Future!

It's my favorite day of the month! Five For The Future's when @webdevstudios dedicates a full work day to giving back to the open-source community. I'm going to help by implementing a user-requested feature via Gutenberg in the WP-Strava plugin #5ftf 🚴👟🛶

So for @webdevstudios #5ftf today, I'm giving back to a new community: the forgetful one! Have you ever enabled DND (for screen sharing perhaps), forgot about it, and miss that meeting? Checkout https://t.co/4oUOIJ3spB which help remind you DND is still active!

Today for #5ftf @webdevstudios, I did some client work but then I snuck in work on the Exif Data plugin to format the raw data into clean readable content for humans. I'm super close to a v1 release.

It's #5ftf @webdevstudios / @maintainn today! I got to talk about all kinds of Contributor Day planning with @NonStopNewsUK and I will also be working on a presentation for my local meetup about contributing.
