As WebDevStudios (WDS) continues to celebrate our 15-year anniversary, we believe that it is important to keep our clients and the WordPress community updated on our company news. We are elated to share the activities we’ve been involved with and the accomplishments we’ve achieved this month.

At WDS, we are always looking for opportunities to get involved with the WordPress community, and August presented quite a few. Read below to see for yourself. We hope you will continue to follow our journey and be a part of our success.

15 of the Best WordPress Plugins

We’re pretty used to our WordPress plugin, Custom Post Type UI, getting lots of attention. After all, it has over 1 million active installations. However, now the spotlight is on the premium version, Custom Post Type UI Extended.

Early this month, WPShout added Custom Post Type UI Extended to the list of “15 of the Best WordPress Plugins for Users, Developers, Everyone.” Other noteworthy plugins that made the list include Advanced Custom Fields, Debug This, and WP-Staging.

This is a banner that says, "Best WordPress plugins."


Breakdown Podcast

WDS CEO Brad Williams made a guest appearance on the “Breakdown,” a podcast from Gravity Forms hosted by Matt Medeiros. In this episode, Brad Brad discusses how WordPress has evolved from a simple blogging platform to a powerful CMS and addresses how the Block Editor (aka Gutenberg) has transformed the editing experience we have today.

WordCamp US

One of the most-anticipated WordCamps of the year happened in Maryland August 24-26. WordCamp US (WCUS) is the flagship WordPress event in the Western Hemisphere. The conference is always chockful of meaningful talks, opportunities to network, and a presentation from Matt Mullenweg.

At this year’s WCUS, Matt discussed the technical improvements of Gutenberg. WordPress Executive Director Josepha Haden Chomphosy presented a talk that preceded Matt’s and addressed the future of WordPress.

The hottest talk of WCUS was Friday’s keynote, presented by Abby Bowman and J.J. Toothman. “For All Userkind: NASA Web Modernization and WordPress” touched on the revamping of NASA’s flagship and science websites as well as the challenges faced by NASA’s web modernization efforts.

Of course, the teammates from WebDevStudios enjoyed spending time together. As a 100% distributed website agency, it’s always a big deal when we get to see each other in person.
