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.

Open Source Report #6

So…I have in fact been sticking to my "do something for open source every day" resolution. What I haven't managed to do is keep up these blog entries about it! Well, time for a reset. Here's a fast list of what I've done the past few weeks, and perhaps I can get back to more regular posting next week.

  • More cleanup work on the RubyGems Guides.
  • Got my Shoehorn gem for Shoeboxed integration building on my continuous integration server.
  • Contributed a tiny bit of code and some troubleshooting to axlsx.
  • Fixed a typo in the authlogic documentation.
  • Kept up with the weekly edge Rails postings (and I'm pursuing another opportunity in connection with this; stay tuned).
  • Decided I was barking up the wrong tree entirely with larkistrano, and killed off the project. Going to rethink this and maybe try again.
  • Documented the :inverse_of option for associations for the Rails Guides.
  • Did an editing pass over the Updating Rails guide.
  • Posted details on using Mercury editor, Carrierwave, and Amazon S3 together.
  • Fixed a path issue in sublime_guard.
  • Forked the feed-normalizer gem to make it a bit more resilient in the face of unparseable HTML.
  • Fixed a parsing issue in the Command Reference in RubyGems Guides.

If you're trying to figure out how to contribute to open source yourself, you could always start with a search on GitHub. Or try OpenHatch.
