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 employed as the Vice President of Engineering at Faria Education Group. If you're interested in working with me, we're often hiring smart developers. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Double Shot #742

You know what's scary? Source code is scary.

  • Evernote Web Clipper - New version. Doesn't appear to work at all with Firefox 10, though. Pity.
  • rocco - Literate programming tool for Ruby. The output is pretty spiffy.
  • spin - Unobtrusive alternative to spork to speed up autotesting.
  • ievms - Easily set up Microsoft's testing VMs for IE7, IE8 and IE9 under VirtualBox on Linux or OS X.
  • Things that Turbo Pascal is Smaller Than - This makes me sad for our profession.
  • slider.js - The latest whizbang jQuery slideshow library, using CSS transitions and canvas to attract attention.
  • MagLev 1.0.0 - The alternative ruby implementation with a distributed shared cache gets a Halloween release. Sexy examples here.
