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 #776

  • Textmate 2 Tips - A collection of info from help files, figuring stuff out, and other sources.
  • DCI for dummies - In case the Wikipedia article I pointed to on Friday made your eyes glaze over.
  • Introducting Graphiti: An Alternate Frontend for Graphite - This looks like a pretty nice way to generate graphs from Ruby + Javascript.
  • SOLID JavaScript: The Single Responsibility Principle - First of a series on the SOLID design principles and their use in structuring your JavaScript.
  • bahia - Some sauce for adding acceptance tests for command-line utilities.
  • tabulous - Nice little gem for tabbed navigation in Rails projects, though the configuration is a bit…different from that for most things.
  • statuscats - Hopefully this will pass quickly, but until it does, here's Rack middleware to serve pictures of cats corresponding to HTTP status codes.
  • riaknostic - Diagnostic tools for Riak.
  • Sleep Deficit: The Performance Killer - No matter how much I understand this, it's tough to act on. One thing I have found useful is to play something like Tetris or Bejeweled for a few minutes when I'm feeling tired. If I can't get anywhere near my usual scores, I know I'm too tired for client work.
  • A Survey of the Rails Ecosystem - Dan Adams offers his opinions on what's out there. Plenty of links to choose from, too.

The statuscats link is incorrectly linking to this page itself :)

Whoops! Sorry about that, helps if I actually put the href in the tag. Fixed now.
