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.

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.
