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.

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,
Marcos

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)?
