WebDevStudios (WDS) continues to operate as normal. Our WordPress agency is active, robust, and growing. Read our company news to learn what’s been happening in our virtual hallways.

In case you haven’t noticed, our website design and development agency loves talking about Headless WordPress! WDS Director of Engineering, Greg Rickaby, who has written quite a few Headless WordPress blog posts, was recently the featured guest on WP Engine’s “The DE{CODE} Podcast.”

During his appearance, Greg talked with host Kellen Mace, a former WDS engineer, about why WebDevStudios embraces Headless WordPress. The two also discussed our Next.js starter and how WDS might utilize WP Engine’s Atlas.

Listen to Greg’s interview here.

Out in Tech

Christina Workman, Support Technician

Website Specialist, Christina Workman, is always going above and beyond to give back. On September 11th, Christina volunteered for Out in Tech‘s Build Day, where she and other members of the WordPress community banded their skills together to build websites for LGBTQIA organizations.

Five for the Future in Action

WDS’ passion for contributing to Five for the Future (5FTF) never waivers, and one of the things that keeps the motivation going is when we witness our contributions in action. Frontend Engineer, Alfredo Navas, recently used his 5FTF time to dive into the world of WordPress full site editing (FSE) and write a blog post titled, “WordPress FSE and Block-Based Themes.”

From there, Jamie Marsland, Pootlepress Founder, created a video tutorial based on Alfredo’s blog post. This is the power of Five for the Future.

What started off as continuing education, turned into a blog post, which then became a tutorial video. Shared knowledge fuels open-source technology and WordPress. Watch Jamie’s FSE video tutorial on YouTube.
