A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time software developer: most of my time in recent years has been spent writing Rails, though I've dabbled in many other things and like most people who have been writing code for decades I can learn new stuff as needed.

Currently I'm employed as the Vice President of Engineering at Faria Education Group. If you're interested in working with me, we're often hiring smart developers. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

  • Amazon Connect - Even if you don't need a "simple to use, cloud-based contact center", it's interesting to note them moving up the value chain into turnkey business flows.
  • LocalStack - "A fully functional local AWS cloud stack." MOCK ALL THE THINGS!

  • Google Data Studio - New tool for building pretty interactive reports on the web.
