No matter the season, WebDevStudios (WDS) is always keen on contributing to Five for the Future (5FTF). While the spring air is invigorating, our motivation to give back to WordPress never stops, regardless the time of the year.
We also love hearing how our continuous contributions inspire others to participate in 5FTF, too. If you’re in need of ideas, Support Technician, Christina Workman, wrote this helpful blog post chockfull of suggestions. Aside from attending WordPress events, another way to be an active member of the WordPress community is by giving back.
In case you’re not sure what 5FTF is, visit the WordPress website to learn more about this important initiative. Tomorrow, April 30th, the entire WDS workday will be dedicated to 5FTF, with our team working on projects that benefit WordPress developers, designers, users, and members of the community.
Our last Five for the Future Friday was March 26th. Below is a mix of some of the things that our team worked on. Check it out, and keep up with our April contributions by following WDS on Twitter, as well as the hashtag #5FTF. See ya then!
My favorite day of the month!
I’ll be working on the Next.js WordPress Starter, wd_s, and doing a deep dive on useQuery from Apollo.

Today for #5FTF @webdevstudios I’m continuing education on Jest testing. So far @salcode and I have explored some challenges around functional component testing and have learned about. the `jest.each()` method for testing multiple cases at a time.
Exciting things are happening!

It’s #5FTF today and so far I’ve contributed by talking to @AngelaSJin and @megabyterose about contributing. It’s all very meta (which is a team you can contribute to, btw!) Thanks @webdevstudios / @maintainn for making this day possible! pic.twitter.com/EpjePaFs9e

Today for #5FTF @webdevstudios I have been working on some maintenance items for some local churches. One site was running WordPress 4.9.16 and is now running the latest version and all of their plugins are up to date.
