Quick Tips for a Better Hackathon w. Heroku

Quick Tips for a Better Hackathon w. Heroku

1. Invest every second in your app,. avoid rabbit holes

  • Heroku makes building and deploying basically every modern language as simple as git push heroku master. Visit{ruby, php, node, etc.} to watch a ~60 second 'Hello World' on Heroku video.
  • You can have everyone up and running with Mongo, Postgres or any of over 150 Heroku Add-ons in moments - check-out our new Heroku Elements page for inspiration.
  • Heroku has three interfaces, the Heroku Dashboard, the Heroku Toolbelt, and of course the API. So you can opt for the interface that you feel most comfortable with.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
