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 #577

I'm starting to feel like a sleep deprivation experiment. Good thing other people are writing good software still.

  • Devise: authentication for lazy programmers - Lots of activity in this project lately.

  • Gity - New git client for OS X. Early days yet, free at the moment. Looks like the goal is to give us menu/keystroke replacements for much of the git command line.

  • Integrity 0.2.0 - New release for this continuous integration server with (among other things) hooks to GitHub, Heroku, and Campfire.

  • PagerDuty - Switchboard for all your email notifications, with multi-user duty shifts, phone and SMS notification, and more. Looks pretty useful if you're the one who has to scramble to respond to sites being down.

  • Bluepill: a new process monitoring tool - Designed for simplicity and lack of memory leaks. If you're fed up with god and monit it looks worth a try.

  • Help John recover - Rails dev John Lannon got shot in a robbery, and the community is collecting funds to help support him durign his recovery.
