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.

What's New in Edge Rails #52

Weeks of December 24 - December 30, 2012

After anticipating Rails 4 for a year, it feels close to me. I'd be amazed if we weren't playing with it by RailsConf.

  • 61b91c4c removes the /bin directory from the default .gitignore. Seldom has a one-line change generated so much heated discussion. My point of view? I never use the default .gitignore unchanged and neither should you. If you don't want to check in /bin, ignore it yourself.
  • f75addd0 introduces assert_not foo to replace assert !foo.
