    3. 3. Why consider Heroku ?
    4. 4. Challenging deployment “Ops teams are overwhelmed by developer requests”“Different environments are not always the same. Patching and internal processes often not automated” “There is a divide in many enterprises between the developers & operations teams.”
    5. 5. Continuous Delivery“..reducing the cycle time between an idea and usable software” - Martin Fowler “Software delivers no revenue until it is in the hands of its users.” -Jez Humble “.. leads to deeper relationship between IT, their business customer, and their final customers.” -Jez Humble
    6. 6. Cloud Services should be easy“Should have a natural way to use the services that fits into each teams existing workflow” “Should be easy to see the value & cost benefits” “Should be as trust worthy as any internal service, if not more so.”

    9. 9. What is Heroku ?
    10. 10. 4 core principlesForget Run See Trust &Servers Anything Everything Manage
    11. 11. What is Heroku ?Forget servers
    12. 12. Introducing Dynos A self contained resource in which to run your applicationA logical abstraction over servers scalability is more valuable than # of serversAllows a trivial way to scale your app and know how much its costing you!
    13. 13. For DevelopersFree:750 hours per month per appHave as many apps as you require
    14. 14. Scaling via web control panel
    15. 15. Inside an Heroku Dyno Embedded • Jetty, Tomcat, etc Container ApplicationDependencies • Maven, Gradle, SBT, Leiningen, Bundle, etc. YourApplication • Anyapplication code • Any framework (Spring, Play!, django, compojure,etc.)
    16. 16. Forget ServersFocus 100% on codeFully managed platformTrust Heroku to be your DevOps support
    17. 17. What is Heroku ?Run Anything
    18. 18. An Elastic “polyglot” Platform-as-a-Servicepol·y·glot [pol-ee-glot]adjective1. able to speak or write several languages; multilingual.2. containing, composed of, or written in several languages: apolyglot Bible.
    19. 19. “Supported” languagesA Polyglot platform: 6 supported languages
    20. 20. Additional support through “Build packs”Control your own build, deploy & run cycle defined using shell script or rubyCreate your app with a build pack heroku create myapp --buildpack https://github.com/a/buildpack.git
    21. 21. Many build packs on Github
    22. 22. Polyglot environmentsSinatra Ruby on Rails Play! Mongo DB Amazon RDS Postgres Ruby Clojure Node.JS Spring LiftWaves Halcyon Noir database.com Couch DB RedisPadrino Ring Compojure Java Scala Open Open Frameworks Open Languages Databases
    23. 23. No Vendor Lock-inProcfile A simple, declarative way to define app process types, so they can be easily managed in unison. A text file in the root of your project containing a startup command & parameters
    24. 24. Procfile examplesSimple web serverweb: python -m SimpleHTTPServer $PORTClojureweb: lein with-profile production trampoline run -m my-clojure-website.web
    25. 25. Procfile examplesJava, Play framework & Postresweb: target/start -Dhttp.port=${PORT}${JAVA_OPTS} -DapplyEvolutions.default=true -Ddb.default.driver=org.postgresql.Driver -Ddb.default.url=${DATABASE_URL}
    26. 26. What is Heroku ?See Everything
    27. 27. logplexUnified logging• App operations• Administrative commands• All infrastructure messagesReal time Dyno information
    28. 28. Logplextime-ordered events aggregated from the output streams of all your app’s running processes, system components, and backing services.heroku logs

    31. 31. Trust & manage
    32. 32. Effortless ScalingWeb WorkerWorkload Diversity (Process types)
    33. 33. Scaling your app$ cat Procfileweb: java $JAVA_OPTS EmbeddedServerworker: java $JAVA_OPTS YourJavaClass$ heroku scale web=4 worker=10Scaling processes... done
    34. 34. Control apps via Heroku.com
    35. 35. Controling Heroku - CLI$ heroku psProcess State Command----------- ----------- -----------------------------web.1 up for 6s java $JAVA_OPTS EmbeddedServerworker.1 up for 5s java $JAVA_OPTS YourJavaClass$ heroku restart worker.1Restarting worker.1 process...

    39. 39. What else is there to Heroku ?Heroku add-ons
    40. 40. Extensibility A range of Relational & NoSQL databases Monitoring for your app …and too much to cover herehttps://addons.heroku.com/
    41. 41. Postgres as a servicePowerful data storage Irrespective of if you app is deployed on Heroku
    42. 42. Git Push DeployGetting started with Heroku
    43. 43. Setup your Heroku accountCreate an account on HerokuDownload the Heroku ToolbeltUpload you public key heroku login
    44. 44. Whats in the Toolbelt?Heroku command line tools create | logs | ps | releases | run | addons | configA Git clientForeman run apps locally as they would run on Heroku
    45. 45. 5 steps to first deployCreate you app (using your build tool)Initialise a git repository for your projectCreate your heroku appCommit your files to the local repositoryPush your app to heroku
    46. 46. SimplisticContinuous deployment
    47. 47. Continuous deployment
    48. 48. Github and HerokuCollaboration in the cloud
    49. 49. Heroku CollaborationAdd multiple developers to an app
    50. 50. Heroku CollaborationAll collaborators can: push updates & trigger deployment view and change app settingsOnly Owners can delete the app or transfer ownership to a different account
    51. 51. Github – Social CodingCollaborate on public or private projects Collaborate 24/7 all over the world
    52. 52. Add Github repo to your appCreate a new repo on GithubAdd the repo to your project git remote add github git@github.com/account/my-repo.gitPush you code to github git push –u github master
    53. 53. Collaborative coding on GithubAdd people to your Github repo only those that you trust!Encourage pull requests allows collaboration around commits Facilitate code reviews
    54. 54. Pull request discussion
    55. 55. Pull request code review
    56. 56. Adding more environmentsTypically there are: production, staging, uat, testing , devCreate the environments you want heroku create my-app-staging heroku create my-app-uat heroku create my-app-testing
    57. 57. Check your addons firstCheck which addons used before creating new environmentsheroku addons --remote herokuheroku addons --remote production
    58. 58. More Envs = more reposEvery time you create a new Heroku environment a remote git repository is addedgit remote –v
    59. 59. Managing multiple reposLearn to love git log Configure it to use –graphOr get a good visual git tool SourceTree for MacOSX is great (and free)
    60. 60. git log --graph
    61. 61. Heroku behind HEAD
    62. 62. Continuous Integration servers
    63. 63. Continuous deployment
    64. 64. Travis-CI for open projects
    65. 65. Managing DeploymentRolling back your applications
    66. 66. Heroku rollback mechanism
