Issue 45

We are building pretty amazing features and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating some of their free time to making 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 want to use this space to highlight our fantastic contributors. Without their ongoing dedication and help these projects would not be a success.

This week we would like to give a big shout out to Gerard O'Neill.

Gerard O'Neill

Gerard is a front-end engineer, a mentor, and a teacher, who has volunteered his time at 20 hackathons, and taught two part time courses at General Assembly. He got his start in tech when he was 10, and built a website for his fifth grade class. He recently launched an ap called Guapington, which gamifies the process of trying to save money and cut expenses. He is also both a morning person and a night person, as well as a dog person.

Our Website

Our repo is private, yet running under an open source license. Instead of pointing to issues and PRs, we are going to include 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.

Released

In this weeks sprint we made some exciting updates to the new dashboard, including adding links and a banner area. We also revamped the coupon feature, allowing coupons to be used for both one time and recurring job posts. Finally we added a static page where partner events can be listed to extend the functionality of the CODE Review Events Calendar.
