2022’s First Five for the Future Friday

It’s a new year, but with the same momentum. WebDevStudios (WDS) remains dedicated to giving back to WordPress by continuing to devote the last Friday of every month to Five for the Future.

Tomorrow, January 28, is our first Five for the Future (5FTF) Friday of the year. As such, we hope to encourage you to add giving back to WordPress to your list of goals for 2022. Here’s how you can get started.

First, learn what 5FTF is.

There are a variety of ways to give back. You could contribute to the Core, volunteer for or speak at a WordCamp, or join a WordPress team (i.e., polygots, documentation, or marketing). Below are some resources to help.
