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.

As of October 2016, I'm not actively looking for my next job, but I'm still happy to chat about potential opportunities. I'm not able to relocate, so unless you're in the Evansville area, I'd need a completely remote gig. I have lots of experience working remote. Prefer full-time but I wouldn't be averse to an interesting contact gig. Drop me a comment if you've got something or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

  • Sublime Gem Browser - If you use ST2/3 and Bundler, this plugin will let you pop open the source code for any gem in your current project directly.
  • SQL Server v.Next Public Preview - Now available on Linux. I really need to find time to take a look at this.
  • PoisonTap - Stick a USB stick in a locked computer and pretty much own the whole thing in short order. This is why we can't have nice things.
