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 #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.
