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.

Posting may be spotty for a while - summer camp season is underway!

  • rubocop-rails - A RuboCop configuration to help ensure that your PRs follow the official Ruby on Rails style.
  • Proximate vs Root Causes: Why You Should Keep Digging to Find the Answer - Root Cause Analysis applies to life as well as software. I'm surprised by how many developers don't do RCA when faced with a serious bug/incident though.
  • Flynn - Do-it-yourself PAAS (or you can pay them to manage a cluster for you).
  • ActiveObject - "Commonly used object helpers in a ruby based project." If ActiveSupport doesn't add enough syntactic sugar for you, here's a good deal more.
