Issue 90

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 week we've been making some practical updates to the website to improve its performance and function for you, the Women Who Code community!

First up, we optimized the image quality on the site's header, profile pages, and Network pages. We also added a feature giving Network events a start and end date, and allowing for recurring events. Events that are not re-occurring or spanning multiple days have the same start and end date.

A redirect was added to the website creating a WomenWhoCode.com URL for our first Webinar which was held yesterday!

We updated Vagrant for Selenium and Chrome.

We also worked on profiles and making it clear exactly how your information is used when you sign up for WomenWhoCode.com. As a member, all of your profile information is private, and can only be seen by you and WWCode HQ. If you are a Network Lead, we make your name, network title, profile photo, and url, visible on your Network page.
