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.

As of October 2016, I'm not actively looking for my next job, but I'm still happy to chat about potential opportunities. I'm not able to relocate, so unless you're in the Evansville area, I'd need a completely remote gig. I have lots of experience working remote. Prefer full-time but I wouldn't be averse to an interesting contact gig. Drop me a comment if you've got something or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

All work and no surf makes for a short post.

Busy weekend, busier week coming. Hopefully this means I'm headed back towards the "feast" part of consulting.

This would be a good day to ship some code, wouldn't it?

  • Testing with IE6, IE7 and IE8 on VirtualBox - If you must pollute your dev box with IE images here's one way to do it.

  • gold - Workflow script for git with a notion of review.

  • AutomateIt - Another alternative for ruby-based server configuration.

  • CodePlex Foundation - Microsoft has launched an open source foundation to do...something. Some of the people involved are good folks, but I must admit I still view this effort with nothing but suspicion. Yeah, they kicked in a million bucks, but so what? That's like me donating the change from my couch.
