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 unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Double Shot #789

So far 2012 is balancing between optimism and terror for me. Maybe I just need more sleep ;)

  • Rails 3.2.0.rc2 has been released! - Why, so it has. If you're upgrading you'll also need to move to the latest releases of sass-rails and RSpec.
  • The Big Three-Oh - Delayed Job 3.0 is out. Here's an overview of the changes, including the addition of named queues.
  • gitgraph - Javascript chunk to let you display Github participation graphs using HTML canvas.
  • migrator - Migration support for node.js.
  • quickie - Quick tests you can embed in your ruby classes. I rather like the idea of not having separate test files.
  • The Future of CouchDB - According to original author Damien Katz, it's the new Couchbase Server, not the existing Apache CouchDB project.
  • code.nasa.gov - Early alpha, serious open source code from the space agency.
