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.

As of October 2016, I'm not actively looking for my next job, but I'm still happy to chat about potential opportunities. I'm not able to relocate, so unless you're in the Evansville area, I'd need a completely remote gig. I have lots of experience working remote. Prefer full-time but I wouldn't be averse to an interesting contact gig. Drop me a comment if you've got something 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.
