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.

If you want to work with me, here's our current job listing for a Senior Software Engineer in US/Canada. We're also hiring a Software Engineer in UK or EU..


A word from our sponsor

Looks like the company I work for is going to be staffing up a small US development office in pretty short order. If you're a Rails developer with solid experience and interest in this, drop me an email. I'll update this with the formal job link early next week.

  • UnCSS - Tool for removing unused CSS styles as part of your JS build chain.
  • Zebras Unite - An attempt to identify viable alternatives to VC-driven unicorn culture. I'm not convinced by it all, but appreciate the alternative viewpoint (and I'm personally happy to be working for a company that is more zebra than unicorn).
  • ctop - Command-line monitoring utility for containers.
