For building today's web applications, our job is less about doing it all ourself, and often more about integrating the right services. This is how engineers build on Heroku, using any of the broad range of add-ons available to them. It's easy to build add-ons for this marketplace and provide the components for applications of the future. I'll show you how!
Heroku has deployed over a million web apps. When you've run that many applications, it's hard not to notice when frameworks and developers do things wrong, and when they do them right. We've taken a look at the most common patterns and boiled down the best of our advice in to 12 simple factors that can help you build your next app to be stable, successful, and scalable. After this talk you'll walk away with in depth knowledge of web framework design patterns and practical examples of how to improve your application code.
