Heroku is a cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) supporting several programming languages that is used as a web application deployment model. Heroku, one of the first cloud platforms, has been in development since June 2007, when it supported only the Ruby programming language, but now supports Java, Node.js, Scala, Clojure, Python, PHP, and Go. For this reason, Heroku is said to be a polyglot platform as it lets the developer build, run and scale applications in a similar manner across all the languages. Heroku was acquired by Salesforce.com in 2010.

  • Pushing an app to the cloud can feel like launching a probe into space. Once your project is thousands of miles away you can't bang on it with a hammer or replace broken parts when there's a problem. Your debugging efforts must rely on the instrumentation, telemetry, and remote controls included with the app when it was deployed. On Heroku, we've gladly done some of that prep work for you. Two n...

  • I recently demonstrated how you can use Rack Mini Profiler to find and fix slow queries. It’s a valuable tool for well-trafficked pages, but sometimes the slowdown is happening on a page you don't visit often, or in a worker task that isn't visible via Rack Mini Profiler. How can you find and fix those slow queries? Heroku has a feature called expensive queries that can help you out. It shows hi...

  • You’re using a continuous delivery pipeline because it takes the manual steps out of code deployment. But when a release includes updates to a database schema, the deployment requires manual intervention and team coordination. Typically, someone on the team will log into the database and run the migration, then quickly deploy the new code to production. It's a process rife with deployment risk....
