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 #771

Two Christmas parties this week. Be still my beating heart.

  • Google Currents - Yet another entry in the "Build your own news magazine" app space.
  • Bullet - Gem to watch for inefficient N+1 queries, now updated for Rails 3.1.
  • What you should know about rbenv and RVM - From one of the RVM contributors, so take that into account.
  • Arcadia - IDE for Ruby in a cross-platform gem.
  • Forbes is wrong about "Developernomics" - Yeah, they are. Especially amusing to read the comments, where people who don't know him assume Larry O'Brien isn't familiar with the field.
  • Caterwaul - "a Javascript recompiler that lets you change the semantics of functions." Personally, I have enough trouble with normal Javascript.
  • Web Applications - Stanford Open Classroom course from John Ousterhout that uses Rails in its syllabus.
  • repmgr - Replication Manager for PostgreSQL 9+ clusters.
  • TonidoPlug2 - "Cloud in a plug" for your own network sharing.
  • Vim: revisited - My brain clearly does not work like Mislav's, but if yours does there's plenty of advice on effective Vim fundamentals here.

I am going to try out the javascript compiler, it should be really nice.
