Book Review: "Heroku Up and Running"

The Heroku Platform as a Service (PaaS) enables developers to deploy web applications to a cloud-based host.  This small book (it is a mere 83 pages long), explains the concepts behind Heroku and how to get the most from it.

The book does a good job at covering Heroku and its related concepts.  It turns out that Heroku is quite a small and simple system, so the…

Agile Cambridge - My Day 1

With much excitement I left Haverhill on the first bus of the day in order to go to the conference. There was method to this madness, since the plan was drinks in the evening, and I wasn't going to pass that opportunity up.

I left with laptop, plan of the sessions I ideally wanted to achieve, and the bits for my lightning talk.
