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 #874

What? Time for computers again instead of hikes and sleeping in a hammock? Oh well.

  • Five Common Rails Mistakes - Welll….good tips here, but I don't think Rails is a "one size fits all" system. Some things that are mistakes in large systems are just fine in small sites.
  • Opa - Statically typed platform that combines frontend code, backend code, and SQL into one unified framework.
  • Monadic - Monads for Ruby.
  • Brackets - Code editor for HTML/CSS/JS from Adobe. Written in web technologies itself, it opens as a desktop app but shows its own source code by default. Kinda nifty looking.
  • Monologue - "A simple blogging (Rails) engine". Yep, another one.
  • Precompile Assets Using a Git Hook - Another way to try to handle the slowness of the asset pipeline.
  • Dead simple ActiveRecord migrations without Rails - Yep, it's good to remember that you can use plenty of chunks of Rails even when you're not writing Rails apps.
  • RubyMotion Screencast - A free 50-minute primer from Pragmatic.
  • RubyMotion Samples - A collection of goodies on GitHub.
