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 July 2016, I'm looking for my next job. 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.

Notes on Rails and other development


Double Shot #1669

  • GPG Signature Verification - GitHub is finally showing when commits are signed. I knew there was a reason I'd been signing them!
  • Rollout - Live code patch push for iOS. If this survives I'll be amazed, given Apple's history of iron-fisted control of the platform.

Double Shot #1668


Double Shot #1667

  • Gogs - Self-hosted git service written in Go. Because apparently everything needs to be written in Go now.
  • The Lost Wax Method of Rewriting Software - A high-level roadmap of switching from one programming language to another without breaking your project.
  • Versionaire - "Immutable, thread-safe, semantic versioning" for ruby projects.

Double Shot #1665

  • Introducing the Query Composer - A new way to build Arel queries, which looks potentially useful in reporting applications.
  • Omniref - Paid (free for public projects) code review platform that builds on top of GitHub.
