Neil Middleton has been developing web applications for over 15 years across a variety of industries and technologies. Now working for a popular agency in the south of England, Neil primarily spends his time writing Ruby applications and deploying to Heroku - the cloud platform provider. Neil is a massive fan of keeping things simple and straightforward.
Richard Schneeman has been writing Ruby on Rails apps since version 0.9. He works for Heroku on the Ruby Task Force and is responsible for the Ruby buildpack. He teaches Ruby at the University of Texas. Richard loves elegant solutions and beautiful code.
And, as a devoted geek I thought I knew all I needed from reading the online docs.
But this small book contains a load of useful information, including a fair amount of "behind the scenes" details.
Learning the customization you can apply to your deploy on Heroku was worth the price alone!
But do not buy this book if you want to start with Heroku. This book assumes that you are using Heroku succesfully already and does not explain the basics of creating a program and install it on Heroku successfully
The authors explain that the book is not intended for novices on Heroku, but then goes on to spends a lot of pages on best practices and general concepts of building scalable web applications, like optimizing SQL queries and storage of session cookies. These concepts should not be new to any seasoned web developer.
