Issue 140

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.



Network Event times change each time Edit page is accessed
– Fixed an issue that was happening when Network event times were changing each time the event was being edited. Now, when a Network event is created and a time is set, that event can be edited as many times as you want, and as long as the time is not changed by the user, it will remain consistent.

Change Viewport Meta Tag to Fix Responsive Bug on Firefox on Pixel 2
– Expanded the accessibility of the website on the mobile platform Pixel 2 using the Firefox browser.

Move user emails to deliver later
– This prevents error pages to users and automatically retrys mailer errors by moving user emails to Sidekiq/ActiveJob after submitting a job that uses a contact form (instead of a link.)

– This ensures that when a CODE Review or Social Media perk is marked as complete, that an email is received as confirmation of the published post.

– This ensures that when a subscription is purchased, that an email is received as confirmation of the published post.

– This allows for the sending of a confirmation email when a job is expired. As there are numerous jobs that are expired this can be triggered manually.
