Issue 94

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

During this week's sprint we made a lot of important updates to the Women Who Code product.

We improved the ability for members to add locations to their profiles with autocomplete suggestions. We also implemented a feature that allows profiles to be associated with multiple Network locations.

On the job board, we added a "view plan" link to the /admin/plans page for each plan and updated the jobs_controller show action to have a flash notice pop up when a job is expired

We replaced the unicorn gem with a puma gem and a rack-timeout gem and removed the New Relic gem from the gemfile. We also worked to quiet asset logging.

And we added static pages for the TOS and Privacy Policy, and updated copy on the donations page to reflect current data.
