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 #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.
