WordCamp US Wrap Up – Best of the Best

Lots happened. This blog post would be endless if we ran through it all. Instead, here are just a few of WebDevStudio’s (WDS) favorite moments, in no particular order.Continue Reading

WordCamp US 2016 – Final Year in Philly

It’s kind of a big deal, and we’re super excited to be a part of it. WordCamp US (WCUS) is happening this weekend, December 2-4, in Philadelphia, PA. It’s the last year that Philly will play host, so we expect this year’s WCUS to be especially eventful.

Not only does WebDevStudios (WDS) have 11 team members who are attending, but our very own COO Lisa Sabin-Wilson is a featured speaker, tackling the topic of BuddyPress as the Foundation for Training, Distance Learning and Support for Business and Government on Saturday, December 3 at 11:30 a.m. in Liberty Bell – Room 120.

Additionally, we have two team members who are actively involved in putting it all together. Both Brad Williams, WDS CEO, and Jodie Riccelli, WDS Client Strategist, have been co-organizers of WCUS for the past two years.Continue Reading

What WDS Did During Five for the Future: April 2016

Although contributing to the open source–and specifically, the WordPress–community has always been a central component of WebDevStudios’ philosophy, it wasn’t until October of 2014 that we figured out how to formally contribute as a full company.

Since many of our developers are passionate about WordPress, it wasn’t difficult to get everyone on board, and a bunch of cool things have come out of the time we’ve spent on it!

This past month, we worked on a few projects during 5FTF time that we thought you might like to hear about:
