Issue 64

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 has been a busy week for the Core Team as we continue our work to improve all of the Women Who Code products. These efforts included merging 22 branches from staging to master, activating many of the features that we've been developing behind the scenes.

On the job board front we made some design updates for a better user experience by adding a notification that clarifies the actions a user has to, or does not have to take, throughout the job posting and reposting process. In addition we’ve been working on the overall functionality of the product by expanding the perk system to update with stripe, and in single post situations.

We've also been doing some work in preparation of expanded profiles and updated Network page abilities. Some of you may have received an email this week asking you to update your profiles. That's one of the early steps we are taking to build this entire process out.

We have also added a Network search controller to allow easier searching of Network pages, and ran a check to detect missing Networks, in preparation for profile migration.

Other action items we've been tackling include removing the admin's ability to delete Network pages – which was formerly causing an error – and updating the box-shadow and border design of some elements that hadn't been updated earlier this year.
