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.

Are there more scammers in the world thanks to the net, or do they just have more reach?

Lots going on in the Rails repository lately; I smell another release soon. (And no, I don't have insider information at this point).

Double Shot #487

Finally, a few reasonable links for the week. Thanks for sticking around.

  • rangetastic - Plugin for doing "between" filtering on ActiveRecord dates via named scopes.

  • PragPub - New free PDF magazine from the Prags. Not much here for Rubyists, but hey, it's free.

  • Launchly - Service to track and monitor feedback on your new web site. They have some free plans for their own launch.

  • 2009 Contest Kickoff - This year's Rails Rumble dates and details are out.

  • RailsBridge - Things are still cooking over at RailsBridge, so if you want to help create an inclusive and friendly Rails community c'mon by. We just relaunched our main site with a new look.

  • haml_scaffold - Like the built-in Rails scaffolding, but generates haml and sass instead of erb and css.

Double Shot #486

Starting the new month by sending out a couple of contracts for potential clients to look over. Life could be worse.
