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.

If you want to work with me, here's our current job listing for a Senior Software Engineer in US/Canada. We're also hiring a Software Engineer in UK or EU..


A word from our sponsor

Looks like the company I work for is going to be staffing up a small US development office in pretty short order. If you're a Rails developer with solid experience and interest in this, drop me an email. I'll update this with the formal job link early next week.

  • UnCSS - Tool for removing unused CSS styles as part of your JS build chain.
  • Zebras Unite - An attempt to identify viable alternatives to VC-driven unicorn culture. I'm not convinced by it all, but appreciate the alternative viewpoint (and I'm personally happy to be working for a company that is more zebra than unicorn).
  • ctop - Command-line monitoring utility for containers.
