Millions of Apps: What we've Learned

Heroku has deployed millions of 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 scaleable. 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.

    @svs: Most likely. ;-)

    I'm gonna stick with what I wrote in reply to the other talk (which dropped the same company name): The topic and description alone would have been sufficient to get me interested.

    So you got my vote (as did the other proposal), even though I don't want to see both of them.

    I'd still appreciate it, if you could remove the company name. I really liked the anonymous approach Euruko was going for. This feels a bit like a cheap shot.
