Issue 62

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.

Released

We've been doing a lot of really important work to make the Women Who Code website a better resource and tool for the community and we want to share these exciting updates. This week we improved the job board search feature allowing it to interpret a wider lexicon of spellings and misspellings, we increased our ability to update Networks on a site wide basis, we removed cancelled posts from the admin display when adding new posts, and we resolved a minor display error in renewal emails, and added an email notification for when a user purchases a plan.

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.

Existing website contributors, please check out our pulse!

Potential website contributors, please email coreteam@womenwhocode.com with your github username to get started. It's built in Ruby on Rails + React + Postgresql.

Applauds!

Technical Pro Tip

By Deanna Gray of WWCode Tampa

Phone a friend. We are lucky to be in a field where our peers enjoy sharing their knowledge. If I'm stuck on a bug that I've been troubleshoot for more than an hour, and can't find a solution online, sometimes a quick phone call to another developer will help me get on the right path. We are not alone, share your knowledge, and reach out to other coders when you need help.
