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.

Weeks of December 31, 2012 - January 6, 2013

  • 44930b2d is the fix for the recent (fairly unlikely) SQL injection vulnerability in Active Record.
  • cb2bd4aa merges in work to replace update_attributes with update.
  • 009873ae solidifies Rails treatment of executables: "Introduce ./bin for your app's executables: bin/bundle, bin/rails, bin/rake. Executable scripts are versioned code like the rest of your app. To generate a stub for a bundled gem: 'bundle binstubs unicorn' and 'git add bin/unicorn'".
