Today we are happy to announce Heroku Shield, a new addition to our Heroku Enterprise line of products. Heroku Shield introduces new capabilities to Dynos, Postgres databases and Private Spaces that make Heroku suitable for high compliance environments such as healthcare apps regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). With Heroku Shield, the power and productivity of Heroku is now easily available to a whole new class of strictly regulated apps.


Today, we are excited to announce DNS Service Discovery for Heroku Private Spaces, an easy way to find and coordinate services for microservice-style deployments.

As applications grow in sophistication and scale, developers often organize their applications into small, purpose-built “microservices”. These microservice systems act in unison to achieve what otherwise would be handled by a single, larger monolithic application, which serves the benefit of simplifying applications’ codebases and improving their overall reliability.

DNS Service Discovery is a valuable component of a true microservices architecture. It is a simple, yet effective way to facilitate microservice-style application...


Heroku has always made it easy for you to extend your apps with add-ons. Starting today, partners can access the Platform API to build a more secure and cohesive developer experience between add-ons and Heroku.

Advancing the Add-on User Experience

Adept Scale, a long-time add-on in our marketplace that provides automated scaling of Heroku dynos, has updated its integration to offer a stronger security stance, with properly scoped access to each app it is added to. Existing customer integrations have been updated as of Friday May 12th. All new installs of Adept Scale will use the more secure, scoped Platform API.

Today we are proud to announce that Heroku CI, a low-configuration test runner for unit and browser testing that is tightly integrated with Heroku Pipelines, is now in General Availability.

Tests@2x

To build software with optimal feature release speed and quality, continuous integration (CI) is a popular and best practice, and is an essential part of a complete continuous delivery (CD) practice. As we have done for builds, deployments, and CD, Heroku CI dramatically improves the ease, experience, and function of CI. Now your energy can go into your apps, not your process.

With today's addition of Heroku CI, Heroku now offers a complete CI/CD solution for developers in all of our officially...


This is the second of a two-part transcript from a recent interview with Tom Dale of Ember.js. In part one we discussed the history and direction of the Ember.js project. Continuing the discussion of the future for Ember.js, this post includes the rest of the interview, primarily focused on the Glimmer.js project. Some of the questions were omitted from these transcriptions for brevity, so we’re also releasing the nearly hour long audio file of the entire interview. Enjoy!

Jonan: Let’s talk about Glimmer 2. If I understand correctly it's released now and it entirely supplants Ember. So how are you planning to gracefully sunset the project?

Terence: I think locks (Ricardo Mendes)...
