HUG Recap

Last night, we threw our first-ever Heroku Users Group meetup, and it was a hit!

Fifty Heroku users, add-on developers, entrepreneurs, and more gathered at our new office to get to know the Heroku team and swap stories with each other. We heard about some of the remarkable applications people are building on the platform, and we’re very excited to publicize those more — at future HUGs, in our newsletter, and here on the blog.

For this first meetup, though, we decided to open the curtains around Heroku’s inner workings a bit. Adam gave a great talk about five new features that should make life easier, particularly for people working on large-scale applications:

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)...

Our travels continue

In our ongoing efforts to spread the Heroku word worldwide, our North American tour continues with a bunch of new venues coming up.

Each time we meet with people, we’re blown away with the new applications people are creating on Heroku. For example, last month FlightCaster launched an amazing app for predicting flight delays using Heroku, Clojure, S3, Hadoop and some general amazing tech. We’d love to hear from you on what you’re creating, and find out how to make some awesome stuff.

Blake Mizerany continues his travel schedule talking about Heroku, Sinatra, Ruby development and scaling. If you’re in the area, make sure to stop by!

Bringing Heroku to the East Coast

With Morten out on the European tour, we didn’t want those here in the US to feel left out. Last week we attended a great BBQ and roundtable with Seattle.rb. Starting next week, we’ll be heading out to the east coast, and want to meet more of you.

Blake Mizerany will be talking with local meetup groups all along the east coast about Heroku, Sinatra, and Ruby development. We’re excited to hear how you’re using Heroku today, and what you’d like to see from us in the future.

We’re currently bookending the trip with two bigger groups: kicking it off with NYC.rb on August 11th, and ending the tour at Boston.rb on September 8th.

Have a meetup group, on the...
