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.

Jeff Atwood speaks for many people in I'm Loyal to Nothing Except the Dream. I almost never speak of politics here, but this is an exception. Please read it, or at least scroll down to the list of things he's doing. Then do some or all of them yourself to help. Thanks.

  • 10acre-ranch - Scripts to bootstrap Rancher on GCE or MacOS.
  • ROM 3.0 Released - That'd be the Ruby Object Mapper, a data mapping and persistence layer for ruby applications.
