Issue 85

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 continued working hard on products to make Women Who Code even better for our members, and we've got a lot of great updates this week.

First off we implemented a new About Us page design with elements including a hero area, "vision" area, "press" area, "partner" area. We also updated all images and aligned them to the left. In addition, we made changes to the stylesheet so that all network details now align to the left.

On profiles, we added a "roles" designation, which allows us to distinguish those members that have leadership positions in Women Who Code.

We also fixed an issue by adding a specific response format to each action in the controller that is impacted, and we built a check to ensure that a network exists before trying to create it.
