One of the core components of how we’ve built our company and products has been a commitment to open source and supporting our communities. We’re well aware that without the support of the community and without the ability to learn from and build upon open source projects, Shifter would not exist. We also believe that investing in these areas is an investment in the future. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that we will be sponsoringDo_Action Japan.
Do_Action is a charity hackathon that uses WordPress to boost local communities. These hackathons take place around the world and each of them is organized by local community members in support of different non-profits. During the event, project managers, designers, developers, social media and content managers, and QA team up to build projects for non-profits and train their staff on how to use their WordPress site in the future.
Do_Action has community events around the world, so be sure to visit their site to learn more about participating or even organizing your own local event.
