About This Coursebeginner

Heroku is a cloud hosting platform that allows you to deploy websites and web applications with a simple Git push. Heroku manages the environment, including installing PHP and Apache on your own virtual server: all you have to do is tell it what to do and Heroku does the rest.

If you run your own website, Heroku is a cost-effective and convenient way to host it without having to manage your own server or be dependent on your hosting company to give you the correct version of PHP.

If you are an employee, many companies are converting to cloud platforms such as Heroku. Therefore, having this skill on your Curriculum Vitae will increase your employment opportunities and make you more valuable to your existing employee.

Invest just one hour of your life to learn to use Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud hosting and I promise you that you will fall in love, as well as adding a valuable skill to your Curriculum Vitae.

Following along step-by-step, you will deploy your first web application to the cloud, use add-ons such as MySQL databases and performance tracking, troubleshoot errors using the Heroku CLI, and configure and customise your virtual server.
