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.

  • Pagehand - Interesting-looking new word processor for OS X, using PDF as its storage format.

  • Ruby on Rails 101 - A collection of links for people just starting out.

  • Sass and Less - Looks like Sass is going to pick up some of the ideas that people liked from Less.

  • rack-cache - Drop-in HTTP caching for your Rails (and other Rack-based) applications.
