Truly the end of an era. Two years ago it was still a no brainer to recommend Heroku to people for easy hosting of small apps.
I would assume that this change cuts away Herokus primary sales funnel, but maybe their business has changed in recent years in ways I missed. The other alternative is that Salesforce truly doesn't care.
It's sad. I am a long time raving fan. I'm sad.
My book now has a real professional cover thanks to my friend and awesome designer Zac Brooks! Leanpub readers should have the new version available to download.

Y’all I need the core team to fix https://ruby-lang.org because when I type it in 0% of the time do I add “www.” on the front

My CI server: “Fix this TypeScript type error”

Having just recently switched onto a Ruby project *and* doing some heavy copyediting, I can confirm that writing Ruby does feel a lot more like writing English. There is a lot of leeway to say “how can I write this more clearly? Not necessarily more concisely, but in a way that’s more obvious that it means without requiring a lot of thought.”
Mostly write Rails and React [Native]. I like to share what I know. I care a lot about evolutionary design. Black Lives Matter. Wear a mask. Web Platform Lead at Big Nerd Ranch.
