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 July 2016, I'm looking for my next job. 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.

  • Gem Dependency Issues with Rails 5 Beta - The joy of dependency management. A good reminder that it's easier to upgrade if you wait.
  • Container-Ready Rails 5 - On the other hand, Rails 5 is the easiest release ever to get running on Heroku.
  • ImageTragick - ImageMagick has a fairly serious vulnerability. Depending on which wrapper you use for images, you may or may not be at risk. Anyhow, doesn't hurt to update.
