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.

Double Shot #1781

  • Homebrew and PostgreSQL 9.5 (or 9.6) - Perhaps I'll remember this the next time the alternative is to swear for an hour because I accidentally did a version upgrade on PostgreSQL.
  • github-changelog-generator - Flexible MarkDown changelog builder for projects that make use of GitHub issues & PRs.
  • jsonapi-rb - JSON API library for Ruby with extra syntactic sugar for use in Rails.
