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.

What's New in Edge Rails #58

Weeks of February 11 - February 25, 2013

  • 9d9b22f4 is another tweak to loading, reversing some earlier decisions. Autoload paths and eager load paths will be separate for Rails 4.0 after all.
  • c9909db9 drops XML parsing from ActionDispatch. If you need it, you can pick upt he new actionpack-xml_parser gem.
  • d3688e02 removes the auto-explain option for ActiveRecord. You can still call explicitly ActiveRecord::Relation#explain. I'll miss this, but I know most Rails folks prefer not to think about the database.
