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.

  • Patternfly - Bootstrap plus UI Templates to help you implement common web UX patterns.
  • A Week with a Rails Security Strategy - Some exercises to help you build good habits as you write your code.
