Don’t Be Spooked! It’s Just Five for the Future!

It was at our company retreat, WDS Virtual Camp, that our team learned just how much WebDevStudios (WDS) has given back to WordPress and the community since we first began participating in Five for the Future (#5ftf), a WordPress initiative designed to encourage WordPress agencies like ours give back to WordPress by donating 5% of company time to the core and community. Since 2014, WDS has been actively contributing to #5ftf by dedicating entire workdays to the effort. We have no intention of stopping.

Tomorrow, October 30th, just before Halloween, our team is closing shop and dedicating the day to Five for the Future. A portion of our team is delaying their #5ftf day to Monday, November 2nd, due to client work.

On these days, WDS team members will be doing things like answering WordPress support tickets, developing free plugins, and captioning WordCamp talks. These are things you can do, too! Simply sign up at and make your pledge as an individual. Think about it: WordPress wouldn’t be the platform that it is today without the thoughtful contributions that developers, designers, and users make.

Here’s a look at what our team completed on August 28th and September 4th, our last Five for the Future Days. Follow WDS and the #5ftf hashtag on Twitter tomorrow and on November 2nd to see what we’re up to in realtime. Thanks for your support!
