In this blog, we will cover the Introduction of Heroku and configuring Heroku on our local system


As developers, we work in a world of abstractions. Each piece of technology that we use is built upon layers and layers of other systems. Frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, Django, and Node.js were created to abstract away the painful parts of web development. They set up standards and best practices to build web applications. We have all of these amazing tools to build applications, but for a long time, we still struggled to easily deploy and scale them.

What is Heroku

Heroku is the Platform as a Service that changed how we deploy web applications. Heroku automates the pain points of deploying code and has established best practices to build applications that need to scale. We no longer need to deal with the pain of setting up load balancers, patching servers, or scrambling to scale up our infrastructure in response to high traffic.
