Issue 103

We are building 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 valuable 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.


During this week's sprint, we focused on some important improvements to our login and authorization systems for the website, and made some updates to the job board and our user role and profile system.

We updated signup to point to OmiAuth, in a move we've been working towards for a while to make the Women Who Code login process more dynamic and secure. We've also set the system to use the Zuul v2 API for requesting user data and have started to remove the admin's ability to set roles as well as other deprecated Zuul features. In addition, we have integrated the member onboarding notifications to work with these processes, and have set the onboarding mail as a background job.

With the job board, we added a sidebar top the customer's admin page that shows available job credits and job information, and we changed the subject line on the post_next_steps email that customers receive when they purchase a job credit, to include smart pluralization.

We also continued our work to set Network Leaders as their own class in the database to allow us to implement greater functionality to accounts with that role.

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.
