Event-driven architectures are on the rise, in response to fast-moving data and constellations of inter-connected systems. In order to support this trend, last year we released Apache Kafka on Heroku - a gracefully integrated, fully managed, and carefully optimized element of Heroku's platform that is the culmination of years of experience of running many hundreds of Kafka clusters in production and contributing code to the Kafka ecosystem.

Today, we are excited to announce additional plans and pricing in our Kafka offering in order to make Apache Kafka more accessible, and to better support development, testing, and low volume production needs.

Heroku is very fortunate to have a strong community of developers that are excited and passionate about our product. Every day we hear from customers who tell us how much easier Heroku has made their lives, and they frequently share stories about interesting technical projects we've helped them bring to life.

Our customers love us, and we love them right back. Today we'll take a look at a few blog posts and applications from Heroku users that illustrate what makes our community so special. We hope you enjoy the tour. If you have Heroku stories of your own you'd like to share, we'd love to hear them!

We've changed languages several times; redesigned the plugin architecture; and improved test coverage and the test framework. What follows is the story of our team's journey to build and maintain the Heroku CLI from the early days of Heroku to today.

Ruby (CLI v1-v3)

Our original CLI (v1-v3) was written in Ruby and served us well for many years. Ruby is a great, expressive language for building CLIs, however, we started experiencing enough problems that...
