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.

Thanks to everyone who commiserated about my pinched nerve issues. I think I'm still a fair way from death's door.

  • jQuery Grid Rails Plugin - I keep meaning to look at the jQuery datagrid. Maybe this will encourage me.

  • gdb.rb - gdb7 hooks for MRI. A fresh way to be nosy about running ruby code.

  • Mu - Facebook Connect library written in JavaScript.

  • Introducing Amazon RDS - The Amazon Relational Database Service - Essentially, canned MySQL servers in the Amazon cloud.

  • nice_find - Find replacement for TextMate that uses grep or git_grep on your project.
