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 #758

Early morning are my favorite time, even when code is involved.

  • GitHire - "Find skilled programmers in your area" by searching GitHub by location and ranking by some popularity metric.
  • Calepin - Hosted blog publishing using Dropbox and Markdown.
  • jQuery 1.7.1 Released - With a batch of bug fixes.
  • Heroku Postgres - SQL-as-a-service, starting at $200/month. The launch announcement is here.
  • Programming - All too true.
  • Faye - Simple pub/sub messaging for node.js and Ruby. As of the 0.7 release it includes direct WebSocket APIs for node and rack.
  • Skype Styles - Skin for Mac Skype chat. This might actually make recent Mac Skype clients halfway usable.
