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.

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.
