Pros: I really like how well it integrates with GitHub. This makes it easy to use others code, or quickly update your own.

Cons: I didn't quite understand all of the capability the software had to offer. You might consider a manual page within the dashboard that has all inclusive documentation.

This is one of the best platforms for hosting web applications, it¿s easy to use and very convenient

Pros: The UI is very intuitive, the pricing structure is fair and there are a lot of add-ons to improve and scale your apps.

Cons: Nothing really, it¿s my go-to platform whenever I want to deploy a new application. Even if you¿re not comfortable using the command line interface, the dashboard is very well done.

Used heroku for multiple software projects and it makes starting so much easier

Pros: Combines all crucial steps from version control to deployment in one app that is easy to use and dramatically reduces the amount of experience necessary to ship one's own app

Cons: Monetization on heroku can be confusing, since the marketplace contains numerous apps that have basically the same features but different pricing strategies. As an app scales up heroku often quickly becomes very expensive compared to self hosted solutions

Pros: Extremely easy to bootstrap and have a project running using buildpacks. Auto-scalable, very cost-efficient (during the initial phase of a company). Easy to hook up everything you need, logging, databases, newrelic...
Imposes that the setup of your project must be done over environment variables, which is a nice pattern. And so on! I strongly recommend this stress free hosting solution!

Cons: They could have more support for open-source platforms, lesser limitations, or be more clear about them. Also, sometimes the account-integration with other

Pros: The configurability and ease of use. The price range for low-end startups is unbeatable. It is has been a vital tool for our testing environment

Cons: The overall cost for a more secure host. When considering the Enterprise version where Keet requires a baa to be in place, heroku makes the configuration of said product to be much more expensive than other aws hosts

Amazing way to bootstrap your online service.

Pros: The ability to pick and choose services and scale that fit your budget is amazing on this stack. One is able to get a product out the door *FREE* and then scale and grow as necessary, and with some good guidance as one finds their market.

Cons: The black box nature of the solution is a pro and a con. I find sometimes wanting to know more about what is going on in the fabric of the solution to track down why something isn't working. However, this is small in comparison to the benefit it provides.

Overall: Getting my startup up and going without having to have a IT/OPS co-founder. Amazing way to get your product out to search the market space.

Great way to get web apps running quickly.

Pros: Heroku makes server and database setup so seamless and so easy. Rolling out new servers and apps went from a day off setup to under an hour. Also the servers are pretty stable.

Cons: Overall heroku is very good, but they lack large team support. When you have a lot of apps and developers it becomes difficult to manage. We've upgraded to their business level and they are adding features to help, but seems slow to come.

I would strongly recommend against using them

Pros: I wish I could think of something that I like about Heroku. Comparatively speaking, they are not really cheaper than Rackspace or AWS so I expect it to perform at the same level and standard. Having used the software for years, even I am surprised that I cannot think of pros.

Cons: Constant changes to DNS and IP addresses that we did not know were coming and could not prepare for.
Server maintenance was supposed to be "all taken care of" and brought our staging site down unexpectedly. Cost us time and money to fix it.

I used to love Heroku a lot, and I transferred all of my projects to Heroku, but now I rarely use it

Pros: I love it's simplicity, and it was very cheap for small projects, and easy to integrate a lot of different 3rd party services.

Cons: Heroku was my go to place if I wanted to host a prototype or hobby project. Right now, everything is getting very expensive, and the service is basically the same as 4 years ago. There are basically no new features for individual developers. There are a lot of new features like teams and pipelines for larger projects for companies. It's more revenue driven now but I don't blame them, it makes sense.
One thing I think it would be nice to have is, there can be cheaper servers (maybe a separate dyno hours) for front end only apps (just like S3 hosting for static sites).

Pros: Heroku makes it easy to deploy your web app without much server configuration. Free and hobby offerings are great value for the money. No more worrying about DevOps

Cons: The memory limits are low. Dynos start at just 500MB. Many add-ons charge monthly fees, which can add up quickly.

Overall: Powerful cloud hosting with easy configuration.

great product for any developer to have a server running in no time.

Pros: functionality, it offers a lot in their free tier, which helps a lot when you are bring a idea to life.

Cons: The interface need to be simplified, New developers specially newbies find hard to get a server running, maybe some one click sever deployment for the most Commum servers would help.

Comments: I used Heroku to learn and test framework like React and Angular.

Its easy to setup and fast to test in cloud environment.

You can configure it to work with your git repository.

Avoid a big headache with heroku

Pros: To get start with the services you just need to create the app in the web manager app, witch makes it super Easy to use, it is super FAST to deploy and run the apps.

It is highly scalable, you can start with a free dyno and scale it over the paid plans according to your needs with makes it ver cost efficient.

It might replace your git repository but also it is very easy to create several environments for your app in no time with exact clones of it even with environmental variables

Cons: The only one that i can mention right now is that i haven't found a really nice solution for push notifications (i'd like to find something easy going like send grid )

Overall: Heroku is a fast, easy, nice and very reliable place to host your server side apps, node.js and ruby on rails apps works like a charm. I use HEROKU to deploy my apps, it allows me to store logs, run commands on the server side, clone the entire app and create a new environment, add services to my apps such as Sendgrid, Postgres DB and many many other.

It also allows you to create pipelines and setup your environment variables in a very easy going manner over the web tools but also there is the CLI that allows you to do all the actions over the console.

The overal service experience is great, once you start working with HEROKU, git will be your best friend since it is the way to deploy your apps. It even provides you with many development environments for your app like Swift and any other that have some sort of package manager.

Last but not least you can manage your project collaborators and ownership over the web manager so you can create your app and add all the members on your development team in no time or you can create an app for your client and once its finished you can transfer the app ownership to your client.

This is by far one of the best services for apps development i'd found in years, it really reduces the development and deployment time, no setup for each app, just the joy of git push heroku master ..... Done

Recommendations to other buyers: nop, keep it cool guys! nice job
