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 #9

Week of February 12-February 18, 2012

Things are still moving along in the usual Rails fashion of incremental improvement.

  • There was a bunch of work on the internals of inflections, including d3071db1 which, if I'm reading it right, is a serious bit of optimization.
  • d6b26a6 adds date_field and date_field_tag helpers to create HTML5 date inputs.
  • 951b5820 makes it easy to run a class other that IRB as your Rails console - a boon for Pry users.
