WW Maker Bytes — Issue 78

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.


This week our sprint focused on cleaning up our code, ensuring that everything is secure, and updating some style features that were displaying strangely on certain devices.On the job board, we updated the subscription copy to use interval and interval_count to display date information. On the admin side, we implemented an update that allows for the addition of static pages via the ActiveAdmin dashboard.After confirming that the pundit gem was being used properly, we added a Brakeman ignore file. We also added strict rules to rubocop checks, and removed some unused devise files, and fixed a couple of minor bugs causing display errors on Network Leader areas of the Network pages.
