Issue 57

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 had fun deleting code!

We are updating our purchasing flow so our user can go from selecting a plan to purchase it right away. Right now, you post a job, pick a plan, schedule posts (if applicable) and then pay. This worked well when there was a one to one ratio with job purchases and plans being purchases. Now that our plan options include more features and could include the purchase of multiple job postings at once, we are updating the purchasing flow. As a result, we get to kill a few features smiley!

We also addressed rubocop styles to add more consistency to our code base, specifically for numeric literals and made the way we output rspec a little more readable.

On the front-end side we fixed a vertical scroll bar that appeared on the top nav and updated underline style for links.

Technical Pro Tip

By Berta Devant of WWCode Barcelona

Think before you code. A lot of people just get right into coding without properly planning what the code needs to do completely, if others depend on it, etc
