The momentum for giving back to WordPress strongly continues at WebDevStudios (WDS). The last Friday of every month is dedicated to Five for the Future (5FTF), the initiative designed to encourage WordPress companies and individuals to dedicate 5% of their time to contributing to WordPress. In fact, we’re eager to inspire others by showing them how to make 5FTF work at their company when we present “Giving Back: How a Company Can Successfully Implement Five for the Future” at WordFest Live on July 23rd at 6:00 pm EDT. If you’re struggling with implementing this excellent cause at your organization, be sure to check out our panel talk.
Tomorrow, June 25th, the team at WDS will contribute to 5FTF by spending the day building free plugins, working on WordFest Live talks, taking support tickets from the WordPress Support Forum, and contributing to the Core. You can keep up with our participation by following the hashtag #5FTF on Twitter. That’s the hashtag we use when we tweet our contributions.
Look over our tweets from last month to see how we gave back to WordPress, and don’t hesitate to join in the fun by participating in Five for the Future, too. This movement is open to everyone. Read this blog post for some ideas to help you get started.
It’s another #5FTF at @webdevstudios! I think I will try a @tumblr import today; their new block format should match to @WordPress pretty well… pic.twitter.com/1mXQ9WLKX5

Major thanks to @thriftydev and the @LocalWP + Github community, (for #5FTF) I have an update to TablePlus for Local that should fix some things I broke in v1.0.3 and v1.0.4… I hope to get it on the addons page soon!https://t.co/lAJAG98Lur
