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 unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. 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'".
