1,000+ Signups: The Floodgates are Open
November 16, 2007 by James Lindenbaum
A couple of weeks ago we quietly started accepting signups for our private beta. We knew people would be excited about Heroku; I mean, we’re pretty excited about it. Word seems to have gotten out, as over the last several days well over 1,000 people have signed up.
We are inviting users off the waiting list all day, every day, as fast as we can. So we’re also receiving a constant stream now of feedback email. Some quotes:
OH – MY – GOD, Heroku! It’s absolutely great. In my opinion, it’s really a revolution in Rails development. – Chris
Wow. This is impressive, I like what I see. – Ben
This is exactly what I was looking for right now. I’ve started teaching myself ruby on rails, and it’ll be fantastic to be able to have something online to mess around with. – Micah
I am really excited about this project. It may become my de facto rails development environment. – Tony
Boy this looks awesome! When you see it, you go… “Well, of course! Why didn’t I think of that?” – Dirk
Wow what an awesome idea. – Bill
There have been some nice blog posts too, including Peter Cooper’s Ruby Inside.
We are glad to hear so many of you are so excited. Thanks to all of our users for your enthusiasm and feedback. We can’t wait to see how you feel about all the features we have planned…
