Heroku has positioned itself as a leader in cloud-based app hosting. The platform is simple to use and allows developers to launch their app without worrying about server provisioning or configuration. Instead, developers can let Heroku deal with the technical challenges of hosting and focus on coding.
In this Coffee Break Course, designed to teach a new skill or concept in a single sitting, Envato Tuts+ instructor Reggie Dawson will show you how to deploy your app to Heroku. He will also show you how to incorporate add-ons into your projects, and how to connect a free PostGRES database.
1. Web Resources for Developers: Heroku
[MUSIC] Hello, I am Reggie Dawson. In this course, I will show you how to use Heroku to deploy your apps. Heroku is an app platform that can scale with you as your app grows. This service offers configured containers, called dynos, that can host your projects with minimal configuration. Heroku worries about the hardware, so you can worry about your code. As developers, we can definitely benefit from the platform, even if we are just using the free option to play around. If you are serious about development, you'll eventually ship some code for production. What better way to learn about developing production software than launching your own on Heroku? In this course, you will learn how easy it is to get up and running with Heroku. You will learn how to prepare your app and then how to deploy it to Heroku. You will also learn about the various add-ons and other features that Heroku offers. After viewing this course, I am sure you will give Heroku a try.
