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 Rails developer and contributor, available for long- or short-term consulting, with solid experience in working as part of a distributed team. If you'd like to hire me, drop me a line. I'm also the author of Rails Rescue Handbook and Rails Freelancing Handbook.

Double Shot #1507

  • Solved by Flexbox - If you haven't been keeping up with bleeding-edge CSS, this is worth a look. Easy vertical centering at last (among other goodies).
  • Blog Post Driven Development - Announce before coding. Interesting idea.
