Contributing Five for the Future of WordPress

Last Updated on

In a recent blog post, Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress, outlined his thoughts on how companies can give back to WordPress:

 

I think a good rule of thumb that will scale with the community as it continues to grow is that organizations that want to grow the WordPress pie (and not just their piece of it) should dedicate 5% of their people to working on something to do with core — be it development, documentation, security, support forums, theme reviews, training, testing, translation or whatever it might be that helps move WordPress mission forward.

 

At GoWP, we owe our very existence to WordPress and the people who use it. For that reason (and because we absolutely love WordPress), we’re excited to join the Five for the Future effort and we’ll be dedicating at least 5% of our time to WordPress core. This is an expectation of all full and part-time employees moving forward.

If you haven’t heard, we’re particularly passionate about support so we’ll ramp up our participation in the support forums and also hope to get involved with the training and documentation teams. Our team members have contributed to the development of WP core in the past and that will continue.

We’re so grateful for all those who contribute to WordPress and look forward to doing our part to insure its future.
