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.

Notes on Rails and other development

Looks like I'm safely booked up for the next couple of months. Maybe the summer drought is over.

More Tools: There are some more folks chiming in on the "Tools of the Trade" thread:

And a few other odds and ends:

Tools of the Trade
- A few more folks have posted their own lists of what they use to develop software. Lots of good stuff lurking here:

And a few other odds and ends:
  • Gerrit - Google project to provide Web-based code review and project management for git-based projects. Interesting but too enterprisey for me to want to use.

  • Kiln: Looks like the Fog Creek guys are getting into code review too. Can't tell what SCMs they support, though.

  • Repository Hosting - Inexpensive Trac, Git, and SVN hosting. I may end up switching some of my repos here. No fancy social features, but sometimes all you want is a publicly-reachable remote.

Much as I'm spending more time on management these days, I do enjoy the chances I get to write some good code.


Double Shot #559

I'm putting in way too many late nights these days.
