Issue 74

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 had a really busy week implementing some great new features for the Women Who Code website. On the front end we added a feature so that when tags are added or updates are made to a job board search, the user is automatically scrolled to the top of the page so that they can see the effect of those changes. We also updated the tags on the job board so that clicking on them brings you to a tag filtered page.

In addition we built a new static page to house the details of Network Plans that can be purchased by potential sponsors, we updated the 'next steps' email that customers receive after they purchase a job to show the number of posts remaining, and we fixed an incorrect link on the homepage.

On the back end we added plan names to data tracking events for Google Analytics on the job board, and customer id's to the posts page on the backend to allow for better customer tracking. We also implemented homepage tracking to allow us to quantify the effectiveness of our new homepage design.
