Issue 60

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.


We've done a ton of work this week to improve the front end and back end function of our products.

Cloning was a big deal during this sprint, as we changed the way that jobs are recreated. Instead of the clone button automatically making another instance of a job, it instead brings you to the job post form with all of the previous job post information prepopulated. We also added more information to the admin posts page, added a home button to the active admin dashboard, and made some cosmethic changes to the teams About Page.

Many of the major improvements that we have been talking about in Maker Bytes over the past few weeks were pushed from staging to master making them fully live on the site. We also removed superfluous code related to previous purchase flow, and cleaned up admin filters in several locations. In addition we changed the way that we process payments, deprecating the method of capturing Stripe charge events and instead capturing the equivalent invoice elements.
