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 #1845

  • Introducing Stack Overflow Trends - A new way to play the "my programming language is better than yours" game. (Ruby is still comfortably ahead of Elixir by the way).
  • Das Keyboard 5Q - Mechanical switches and colored LED keytops that can be controlled over the internet. So kind of a 50-pixel output device.
  • Prepack - "A tool for making JavaScript code run faster" by optimizing away as many object allocations and intermediate computations as possible. Not for production use but probably worth keeping an eye on.
  • CPU Utilization is Wrong - top(1) is not telling you what you think it is telling you.
  • Gixy - Static configuration analyzer for nginx, focused mainly on security issues.
