However after the first three chapters things go south. The book loses most of its focus. Heroku Regions - mostly a throw away chapter. Heroku PostgreSQL - one of the more obvious examples on how to lose your focus when reading a chapter.
The whole chapter felt like a kitchen sink of features put altogether in an attempt to make a logical chapter out of it. While the idea the chapter had is great, the bigger question I ask myself is why? It starts with, metaphorically, here are Buildpacks, they do stuff, here are some phases with long text.
Here you have 4,5 commands in total. That's all. Aaaand authors closing chapter. Where was my lengthy buildpack chapter?
And it was very lengthy on top of that. Twitter-driven development, Heroku status site, Heroku support? I think people can think of this before buying a whole book about Heroku.
The Game For Big Kids
Overall the book comes far from a real Heroku in-depth. As an Up and Running one I guess it fits the title, but it leaves many people asking for more, including me. It could've been better if some of the more obvious parts as debugging and support were delegated to the actual Heroku support pages and etc. No need to add throw away content in a book, but that's just how I think books should be - pure and focused.
Shelves: paas. I need to say that I'm new to Heroku platform and that's why I searched for the source which allows me to dig deeper into details. Well, my feelings about the book are twisted. From the one hand it is the good start for learning what the PaaS is and how to cook it right way. I like that different real life cases are described and the add-on for it is suggested.
On the other hand, yet both authors are a I need to say that I'm new to Heroku platform and that's why I searched for the source which allows me to dig deeper into details. There are a lot of places which needs to be explained deeper but not wider. I think the book will be better if there will be more references to external sources or more information about DB optimization or different caching strategies and so on. However, I read early release edition so the things might change greatly. Feb 18, Shai Sachs rated it liked it Shelves: professional. A pretty handy look at the Heroku ecosystem, its history and jargon.
As someone who's had a modicum of experience with Heroku over the past year or two, and who has a reasonably decent grasp on the basics of relational database administration, most of the text was filling in background rather than introducing entirely new concepts. That said, the chapter on custom buildpacks was really interesting and, I suspect, will one day be a really useful reference. If you've not worked with Heroku and nee A pretty handy look at the Heroku ecosystem, its history and jargon.
If you've not worked with Heroku and need to worry about deployment processes and production environments with any moderate amount of frequency, this quick hundred-page read which took me something like a month to actually finish Dec 04, Ronan O'Driscoll rated it really liked it. Very useful overview to Heroku with some useful tips sprinkled along the way.
Its a short book but I found myself returning to it as I needed clarification on certain details.
