Issue 61

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.


This week we've been pushing a lot of the changes discussed over the past few weeks to master, implementing them live on the Women Who Code website. Some of those updates include:

A refactored purchase flow to separate the creation of job posts from purchasing something else. We also made changes to the customer admin dashboard interactions by allowing users to see and update the status of a plan in active admin. In addition we changed cancelled posts so that they no longer count as available credits.

We implemented a measure to prevent jobs that are expiring from being included in the postables array. We also added a drop down indicating Sold Out, Archive, and Active jobs, and set it so only in stock options can be seen.

On the front end we changed the way we interact with customers by changing the word posts to promotions for better clarity, while also giving customers direct links for both post and schedule options.

And on the website we added names and images to the about page reflecting new HQ and Advisory Board members.
