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.

Double Shot #1543

  • Rails Contributor Code of Conduct - I just want to make it 100% crystal clear that I do not represent the Rails project or its community. As far as I'm concerned, this whole CoC trend is an extremely bad idea.
  • Bootstrap 4 Alpha - Remember when this CSS framework was just a teeny little thing? Yeah, me neither.
  • The Future of Developing Firefox Add-ons - The future appears to consist of dropping the way add-ons have been written for a decade and reducing what they can do. Some developers are not happy. I'm not real happy either; this brings up the real possibility of not having a single web browser that fits my needs.

I curious... why do you think having a CoC is a bad idea?

I'm surprised to hear your strong opposition to CoCs. Personally, I feel that potential tradeoffs seems quite fair. I realize that blog comments aren't a great place to have this level of detailed discussion, so if you're open to talking through your reservations more I'd love to hear them! Drop me an email or a Twitter DM @metavida.

Thanks, always, for the links,

I'm also curious about why you're against a CoC. Specifically for open-source software projects, or for other things as well (like conferences etc)?
