  • Can I run scripts 24/7 using GitHub?
    Well my question is simple, I heard somewhere you can host sites using GitHub, so I was just curious if you can keep running python scripts using GitHub. I have 2 reddit bots that are currently running 24/7 through Heroku. I was just curious if I could keep em running 24/7 through GitHub instead. - Source: Reddit / 12 days ago

  • [21] Top 10 Must-Have Web Dev Tools – May 2021
    A very impressive and easy-to-use deployment and collaboration platform for front-end developers from creators of NextJS. Vercel enables developers to host websites and web services that deploy instantly and scale automatically – all without any configuration. So far, I have been using it for a couple of weeks, and it really feels like a Heroku or Netlify on steroids. - Source: / about 1 month ago

  • Shelly: under the hood
    Finally, on the backend, we've got a simple Scala-based application, deployed on Heroku. The database is PostgreSQL, but the application is not a straightforward CRUD as you might expect, but instead uses SQL-based, transactional event sourcing. Probably overkill, but β€” if we ever want to create a new view basing on the events (which include e.g. Program creation in creative mode, or solving a challenge) β€” for... - Source: / 3 months ago
  • Need advice about infrastructure [Django, Nuxt, AWS]
    1a. Just use heroku. Might look expensive but the moment you put into the equation your time, it is not that expensive. You can always move things later to more cheap and do it yourself providers (such as AWS). You'll have won a lot of time implementing features by then. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago

3 best alternatives to the big cloud providers
It mostly comes in highlight due to its wide variety of useful Extensions (which include the ones for managing a database to sending emails or running cron jobs). Also,with built-in CI tools and the fact that almost all of the management tasks can be abstracted, you get a pat on the back, Heroku!!!
Heroku vs self-hosted PaaS
Heroku uses a concept they call dynos. A dyno is by default a container with 512MB of RAM that runs a part of a single application. To scale your app you simply add more dynos and Heroku will automatically load balance it for you. You can also have dynos running background jobs and such as well as schedulers to do cron-like things. If your app gets a lot of traffic then you can simply add more dynos to increase...
Top 5 Alternatives to Heroku
Heroku is a great company; they blazed the trail for a commercially sustainable cloud service like PaaS in an industry where technology is changing rapidly. For a couple of years now, there is no point denying the fact that PaaS had fulfilled so many business needs. I really don’t think there is anything they’ve not done as a cloud service provider, but recently, I began to notice a trend in the developer...
