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 #549

Congratulations to GitHub on a successful move.

  • Generate gem.yml and .gems for Rails - Handy when deploying to Engine Yard or Heroku.

  • SVN Server Admin Issue: Fix It! - The fact that naive Capistrano deploys can put excess and dangerous files on your server if you're using SVN has been discovered again.

  • BugMash Cheat Sheet - Put together for the RailsBridge BugMash that happened over the weekend, but useful for anyone working on the Rails source.

  • Why I work with a developer hotline - It's nice to have happy customers.

  • convert_theme - Dr. Nic is working on code to suck HTML themes into Rails apps and properly set them up for dynamic bits. Looks worth keeping an eye on.

  • jQuery Desktop - Some people can do amazing things with javascript.

  • Construct - Yet another CI server for Rails, this one implemented as a Rails application.

  • validatious-on-rails - Another bit of glue between Rails models and client-side validations.

  • Review Board - Open source code review tool. This might bear looking into.

Basie has been using ReviewBoard since last August---some minor grumbles, but overall very happy.
