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 #757

If only client work were as fun as finding out what's new on the Internet.

  • Sugru - Air-curing rubber. Looks cool, but I can only imagine what nefarious uses my children would put it to.
  • showoff.io - "The easiest way to share localhost over the web." Yeah, yeah, it's just automating SSH tunnels, but for $5 a month I'll take the easy automated solution.
  • handsoap and savon - Superior alternatives to soap4r (if only that project weren't already committed to soap4r!). (Hat tip to Jérémy Lecour)
  • s3nukem - Delete large Amazon S3 buckets - Deleting buckets with millions of items is one of the stupidly hard operations in Amazon S3. This makes it a bit easier. (Hat tip to Jérémy Lecour)
  • Pakyow 0.7 - Oh look, another ruby web framework came out when I wasn't looking.
  • jquip - Project to break up the monolithic jQuery code to a small core and plugins.
  • Literate programming with Github and Markdown - I've been interested in literate programming for ages - but not interested enough to actually expend the effort.
  • Mulberry - Cross-platform web application framework built on top of PhoneGap.
  • Introducing gem_git: tiny tools for working with gems' code via Git - The easy way to clone or fork a gem.
