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 October 2016, I'm not actively looking for my next job, but I'm still happy to chat about potential opportunities. 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.
  • versionist - Plugin for versioning Rails 3 RESTful APIs, with support for multiple versioning strategies.
  • 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.
  • Mass Assignment Security - How you can handle it in the controller in Rails 3.
  • Scriptular - Regular expression tester for javascript.
