Course Overview Welcome to this Salesforce Play by Play with Pluralsight. Salesforce Play by Play is an interactive series where we sit down with Salesforce experts such as MVPs, consultants, developers, and architects to discuss common challenges faced every day by Salesforce customers. In this course, we challenge Lyric Hartley, customer solution architect at Heroku, to help us understand the Heroku cloud platform and how to best assess whether it's a good fit for any particular implementation. First, Lyric walks us through a high-level comparison of various deployment platforms and clarifies just where Heroku sits in the broader cloud-based services ecosystem. He breaks down and identifies the 12 factors, the key principles underlying Heroku's creation and the drivers behind its design. Next, Lyric reviews how to identify what kinds of applications would be a good fit for Heroku, as well as some, which might be considered improper fit. He walks us through private spaces, provisioning, scripting, Heroku buttons, deployment pipelines, and much more. Along the way, he touches on other Heroku core capabilities such as language support, service ownership, build packs, and team user and app management. He shows the many ways developers can interact with Heroku to manage deployment, whether via the dashboard, the API, the commandline interface, and even Slack. By the time we're done, you'll have gained a solid understanding of Heroku, as well as some common misconceptions, and how to best assess if it's a good match for your needs. So whether you're a Salesforce or non-Salesforce developer, architect, or business manager making decisions around platform choice, please join us for Understanding Heroku Myths and Magic. We hope you enjoy it.
