Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] Heroku
I'm a freelance software developer not embedded in a library, but I use Heroku routinely to host apps I'm developing for fun, or as a testing site, and one of my clients deploys its production app on Heroku. It took me a while to wrap my head around, but I love it to little tiny pieces (and once you do wrap your head around it, it becomes *unbelievably* straightforward).
Do you have any more specific questions?
