Heroku.com In Their Own Words
“Hosting is obsolete
When you create or import an app with Heroku, it’s already live on the web. No configuration or deployment necessary.”
Why Heroku.com It Might Be A Killer
Heroku simplifies Ruby development, fulfilling a much needed niche. Developers can focus on making cool new tools for the public without having to worry about development. It bridges the creation of an idea to its execution. Users could set up demos for clients, they could experiment with ideas and see how they play out—it’s a great idea.
