Added a link to the new WWCode shop in the website's footer.

Added an About Page to Network pages on the site which is available at /:slug/about. This uses a new About Page template using HTML and JSON.

Removed nested caching from Network events, which was causing inaccurate event information to be listed on Network events pages, and removed an inaccurate datetime comparison that was causing some events to be missing from Network events pages.

Added a new Code of Conduct page which is available at https://www.womenwhocode.com/codeofconduct.

A public Google API key was added to the app.json file.

Added a "Have questions?" note on "my jobs" on the user dashboard.

Implemented a change to make remote jobs stand out, by showing first and appearing in the standard $teal color.

Added a perk type to job postings that includes both a job post and a credit.
