Issue 84

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.


There was a lot of really great work implemented during this week's sprint.

On profiles, we set profile emails to be downcase before saving, in order to match user email addresses and added uniqueness requirements for profiles to prevent two profiles with the same email address from being created. We also updated some copy to make it more accurate to its intended purpose.

We updated the companies page with new copy in accordance with what was learned during user testing. We also removed old styles and unused code from the jobs about and checkout pages.

We did some work on the URL structure of the site, creating a SlugsController that renders the show view for the root level slug, then a SlugValidator that validates the uniqueness of all root level slugs, as well as database constraints to guard the integrity of all data.

The WWCode HQ team is growing, and this week we added our newest member, Brittani Small's to the Women Who Code About Us page.
