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.

Currently I'm unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Double Shot #354

QA and documentation are on my mind this morning. I need to remember the lesson that a PM can't spend all their time coding.

  • Well Wishes $2 You - This doesn't really have anything to do with Rails, except that the Rails community is traditionally very giving. But if you can spare two bucks around Christmas time, you can help do some good.

  • Named Scope: To Lambda or Not To Lambda, That Is The Question - Good explanation of what lambdas are doing in named scopes and why you might want one.

  • GitHub Pages - One more spiffy feature from the GitHub folks - free hosting, essentially. It works, too.

  • Ruby 1.9 can check your indentation - Well, at least if you run with warnings, it can.

  • Amazon SimpleDB - Now With Select - A syntax change makes this cloud database more accessible for more developers.
