  1. Five For WordPress

    Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of the WordPress open source project, suggested that WordPress-centric companies should aim to utilize 5% of their company resources toward contributing back to the project in a blog post published at the end of September. It spurred a lot of conversation and some controversy in the WordPress community.

    What do we think of the idea? We think it's a great idea and we're going to find ways to do just that.

    Starting today we are moving forward with having the Gravity Forms support team contribute 5% of their time to contributing back to the WordPress project by assisting WordPress users on the WordPress.org support forums.

    Our user support team currently consists of Rob Harrell, Chris Hajer, Richard Wawrzyniak and Samuel Aguilera will devote 5% of their working hours to assisting users and helping make the WordPress.org support forums a better place.

    This is a first step towards Rocketgenius contributing to the WordPress project on a weekly basis. We plan on contributing to the WordPress project much more than this in the future and encourage other WordPress-centric businesses to do the same.

    In the grand scheme of things 5% is very little and we plan on contributing as a company much more in the future.
