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 July 2016, I'm looking for my next job. 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 #832

Someone has been feeding my inbox growth hormones. I wish they'd stop.

  • iPad HTTP Debugging with Charles - Run iPad traffic through a desktop proxy. Useful.
  • Crew - Code review tool for git projects based on a branching model.
  • sudo_attributes - Methods for Active Record to allow you to override the attr_accessible settings that you should be making.
  • Zonebie - Set a random timezone at the start of each test run to make sure you don't have timezone-specific code.
  • Induction - Database client for OS X with built-in visualizations. Alpha release but worth keeping an eye on.

  • There is no simple solution for local storage - Discussion of some of the pros and cons of localStorage and other HTML5-ish browser storage methods.
  • Open Sourcing BankersBox - But if you do want to use localStorage, here's a javascript library to make it look sort of like redis.
