Issue 71

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.


During this week's sprint we've been working on some key updates that will allow the Women Who Code team to better serve the community. First up we made an improvement that now lets administrative users link jobs to posts, which will increase our ability to efficiently publish relevant job opportunities in the CODE Review. We've also updated our back end search analytics tool to include region and continent data so that we can get a better understanding of the Women Who Code member base. In addition we implemented a minor fix to an issue that was effecting some static pages.

Coming up next, we are working on a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) engine for publishing on WomenWhoCode.com. This will allow us to share content in a more attractive and organized way, and will eventually become the basis for the tool used by all members to post articles and blogs.

Technical Pro Tip

By Barbara Martina Rodeker of WWCode Berlin

Choose a good source of information and keep yourself always updated. The internet is huuugeee, our time precious, and there are amazing newsletters to which you can subscribe to receive pre-digested meaningful information. Also, try to master the set of tools you're using for developing. You can know a language from a to Z, but if you don't know your environment well, you'll loose a lot of time solving problems not related to programming.
