HUG Update

A few weeks ago, we announced our first-ever Heroku Users Group (known henceforth and forever more as a HUG, showing just how much we love our developers!) meetup. We’re now a week away, and we thought it’d be a good time to go into a little more detail about the plan.

On November 3rd at 7pm, we’re opening the doors to anyone who uses Heroku – developers who deploy to us, businesses built on our platform, add-on providers who create and manage services for our users, and more. We’re eager to get everyone in the same room, and we’re looking forward to see the new ideas and developments that will come out of all of us talking at this (and at future) meetups. To kick things off at this first event, though, we’re going to provide the content for you.

Adam‘s going to kick things off with a quick peek at several features that are in development. He’ll be talking about the things many of you have been asking for, and they’ll make deploying complex application much more pleasant. After that, we’ll have a panel of representatives from each of our internal teams – the people who make Heroku run – and they’ll be ready and able to answer any questions you have. Curious about the routing mesh? They wrote it! Wondering about the future of Postgres at Heroku? They know! You bring the questions, they’ll bring the answers.

And after all of that, the fun doesn’t stop – it just moves over a few blocks. At 9pm, we’re cosponsoring a drinkup at Bloodhound with our friends from Basho, so be sure to plan to stay out!

As you might be able to tell, we’re getting more and more excited as we close in on the 3rd, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there. Don’t forget to let us know that you’re coming, and we’ll see you next week!
