Enjoy this free excerpt of the first two chapters from the Early Release of Heroku: Up and Running. With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.
Build, deploy, and manage applications in the cloud with Heroku, one of the first PaaS platforms to offer sophisticated hosting and development services.
