Launched in 2014, Five for the Future encourages organizations to contribute 5% of their resources to WordPress development. This benchmark was proposed by WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg to maintain a "golden ratio" of contributors to users. Participation in the community has more than quadrupled since launch.
At Plank, we believe in open-source software. We use it to power all of our projects. So many others have contributed to making our lives easier and more productive, it's important that we do the same!
We’ve begun our Five For the Future journey by contributing to the documentation and polyglots teams. The polyglots team is a natural fit for us, as our team members speak various languages, including English, French, Spanish and Arabic. We’ll be looking to expand our involvement in the near future by attending contributor day at WordCamp US 2023.
Visit our pledge to see our contributions to the project so far!
