February has been a fine month of activity and milestones, giving us plenty of WebDevStudios company news to report. We’re celebrating achievements, sharing knowledge with other WordPress companies and community leaders, as well as looking forward to upcoming events.
Take a look below for a glimpse at what’s been going on in our virtual hallways. With this much excitement, we’re looking forward to seeing what happens in March.
CPTUI Downloaded Over 10,000,000 Times
It happened again. The WebDevStudios WordPress plugin, Custom Post Type UI (CPTUI), has reached another landmark. Since its initial release, CPTUI has been downloaded over 10,000,000 times.
This WebDevStudios company news is huge, as very few plugins have achieved such a milestone. Be on the lookout for an upcoming blog post from CEO, Brad Williams, with more information detailing the backstory of CPTUI and what it takes to be one of the most downloaded plugins in the WordPress repository.
Learn more about CPTUI and why you should be among its base of loyal users at WordPress.org. Show your support for CPTUI by nominating it for the plugin competition bracket-style competition, Plugin Madness.
Video Interviews and Podcasts
WDS chief executives, directors, and other team members love to participate in webinars, video interviews, and podcasts. If you’re interested in featuring someone from WebDevStudios in yours, contact Marketing Strategist, Laura Coronado, at [email protected].
Why WP Agencies Should Use CI/CD
WDS Director of Engineering, Greg Rickaby, along with Engineering Manager, Justin Foell, took time out of their workday to talk with Maciek Palmowski of Buddy about how WebDevStudios uses CI/CD and why other WordPress agencies should consider doing the same.
You can watch this video interview below.
Do the Woo
Armed with a passionate, growing knowledge of Blockchain and NFTs, Brad joined BobWP for a “Do the Woo” podcast episode featuring Christopher Carfi, from Unlock Protocol. In Bob’s synopsis of the episode, he says Christopher “…explains blockchain and NFTs in a way that I haven’t heard anyone explain them before.”
It’s an interesting lesson. Listen in at DoTheWoo.com.
The Brad & Matt Show
At the most random times, Brad gets together with WordPress podcaster, Matt Medeiros, to host a talk show. This time around, WDS COO, Lisa Sabin-Wilson, joins Matt (sans Brad) for a discussion about yoga, football, and WordPress. Listen below.
Five for the Future in Action
We love when we see WebDevStudios team members receive recognition for their Five for the Future (5FTF) contributions. Recently, WP Tavern caught wind of the Block X-ray Attributes plugin, which was developed by WDS Principal Engineer, Sal Ferrarello, during his WDS-sponsored 5FTF days.

WordPress Montclair Meetup
There’s still time for you to register to attend WordPress Montclair’s next virtual meetup event on February 28th. This is a joint meetup group between Montclair, Morris County, Central Jersey, Bergen County, and South Jersey WordPress meetups.
At their next event, the mixed group will look over newsletter solutions. Both Lax Mariappan, Backend Developer, and Laura Byrne, Digital Strategist, will be presenting. Register at MeetUp.com.
When Laura isn’t busy strategizing at WDS or presenting at the WordPress Montclair Meetup, she is organizing WordCamp Montclair, which is happening June 25th. The call for speakers is now open, and you have until April 15th to submit your talk.
Join Brad and Victor Ramirez on Twitter Spaces every Friday for WordPress Fridays. During these audio events, they and other listeners talk about WordPress, technology, and other fun stuff.
