WW Maker Bytes — Issue 53

We are working to build great 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 free 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.


We’ve been incredibly busy this week developing the infrastructure for our product while also implementing new features. With the job board, we did some general maintenance to the functioning of some of the admin features including the way job board posts are both viewed and billed, and their interaction with publishing to the CODE Review. We also changed the way that job post perks are comunicated and interacted with to make for a better user / customer experience. In addition, we have added the ability for jobs to be cloned and are working on the details of that feature.

On the design side we separated the sign in / sign up buttons for logged out users, added content to our new sponsors page to align with strategic needs, and added an automatic confirmation email that is sent when customers renew a subscription based plan.

Now we have a CONTRIBUTING to more accurately communicate our guidelines and workflow.
