Heroku allows you to deploy applications quickly and easily to the cloud. This course will show you how to deploy and work with the Heroku cloud platform by deploying and optimizing four applications written in four different technologies.
All applications need a final place to call home when they're ready to be used and released. In this course, Heroku: Getting Started, you'll learn what it takes to deploy applications in four different technologies to the Heroku cloud platform. First, you'll discover how to efficiently use the Heroku Command Line Tools, as you deploy those four sample applications on your own Heroku account. Next, you'll explore how to provision add-ons. Finally, you'll delve into scaling applications to handle high traffic requests and throughput. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a better understanding of the Heroku architecture and terminology, and be able to easily deploy and host your own applications on Heroku.
Course Overview (Music playing) Hey, this is Dan Bunker, and welcome to Getting Started With Heroku, I'm a software developer and consultant based in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. Heroku is a platform as a service that is built on top of the Amazon AWS architecture. If you want to deploy applications quickly and easily to the cloud and have them production-ready in just minutes, then you want to check out what Heroku has to offer. In this course, we will deploy four different applications to Heroku. The application technologies that we'll use will be Ruby on Rails, Python and Django, Java Spring Boot, and Node with an Angular front-end. By the end of this course, you'll be able to deploy a variety of technologies to Heroku, connect applications to databases, and take a DevOps approach when managing your app from development to production. To get the most out of this course, some familiarity with basic programming skills and awareness of cloud technologies will help you understand the material better. I'll also be utilizing git repositories and the command-line, so having some knowledge there will help you as well. I hope you'll join me as we learn the basic concepts of Heroku through tutorials and demos with my course, Heroku Getting Started at Pluralsight.
