Issue 43

We are working to build great features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their free time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.


This week we've done some great work towards implementing subscription options for Women Who Code For Companies. We've been developing coupons to allow companies to sign up for both subscription and non subscription based plans which allows the system to be properly implemented, and we've been improving the functionality of the search bar to be more user friendly and intuitive.

In design we've been working on improvements to the job board nav bar, and redesigning the general nav bar for better rendering across all devices. We've also enhanced the URL structure of blogs to include title specific slugs for enhanced accessibility.

Now we have a CONTRIBUTING to more accurately communicate our guidelines and workflow.

Our Website

Our repo is private, yet running under an open source license. Instead of pointing to issues and PRs, we are including a screenshot of what our weekly pulse looks like.

Existing website contributors, please check out our pulse!

Potential website contributors, please email core-team@womenwhocode.com with your github username to get started. It's built in Ruby on Rails + React + Postgresql.

Github Pulse

In The Works

Subscription Based Job Posts Are in the Works!
Within the next month, we are going to add in subscriptions, which will change the flow so the user purchases and then posts their jobs and schedules their posts.

Thank you for all your support as we continue to make womenwhocode.com the place we go to reach the careers we want.

Pro Tip

When designing and building your web application, put your best foot forward on the mobile platform first and scale up from there to design for larger displays. This way you don’t have to worry about what to trim instead you can build a feature-rich, robust product in an iterative fashion with the Progressive Enhancement workflow.
