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 #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.
