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.



A volunteer coder that had never contributed to a large GitHub repo before helped improve usability by removing unnecessary text from the site.

Job Board

Updated the job board to allow plans that have no interval. Originally all plans had life cycles that could be recurring to allow for plans with certain lengths, and renewable options. However, this update allows one-off plans to exist and show on the Companies page even if they do not have an associated interval.

Built an email forwarder for custom Job Post plans.

Resolved a React.js error in the console on our Job Post form, that occurred when updating application url & application errors.

Created a new social image helper for job logos, that provided a noninvasive way to make smaller logos from Facebook Open Graph and Twitter cards larger, for sharing purposes.

Fixed Stripe charge card error message.

Upgraded our version of Elasticsearch for maintainability, support, and security bumped the version of Elasticsearch in Vagrant to match review apps/production, and set review apps to use the bonsai add-on.

Networks and Profiles
On Networks pages, made it so that if a Director / Lead / Evangelist does not have a URL associated with them, then they are not clickable.

Restricted AA fields and filters for profiles, removing 'private' fields from index and show views in AA, removing redundant filters, and removing the restricted fields from the edit form.

Our Website

Our repo is private, yet running under an open source license.  Instead of pointing to issues and PRs, we are including a screenshot of what our weekly pulse looks like. 

Existing website contributors, please check out our pulse!

Potential website contributors, please email coreteam@womenwhocode.com with your GitHub username to get started. It's built in Ruby on Rails + React + Postgresql.
