Heroku Enterprise Launch
FYI- Heroku News:
Heroku Enterprise Launch
We're excited to announce the launch of Heroku Enterprise, a new edition of Heroku that combines the core Heroku experience with advanced collaboration features, better access controls, enhanced runtime confidence, and enterprise-grade support that large companies need for their app development.

Heroku Connect Demo Edition Launch
Heroku Connect now has a free Demo Edition available with just one click from the Heroku Add-ons marketplace. Integrate Heroku apps with Salesforce business processes and data without writing a single line of integration code, using Heroku Connect's easy point and click interface. You can even get started by simply clicking this Heroku Button, which will automatically provision Heroku Connect Demo Edition for you so you can up and running even faster.
Ship Code Faster: GitHub Integrations now GA
GitHub and Heroku are two technologies made for developers to achieve optimal focus and flow to deliver great software, faster. We're extremely excited about what the recent GA of GitHub integration for Heroku means for users. By connecting your GitHub repo to a Heroku app, you can manually deploy branches from the repo, or you can configure a branch to auto-deploy to the app on every GitHub push. For auto-deploys, you can configure Heroku to wait for continuous integration to pass on GitHub - Heroku will only auto-deploy after all GitHub statuses for that commit have succeeded for that commit have succeeded
Heroku Button of the Month
Let's Chat is a better way for small, agile teams to chat, built as a self-hosted, persistent messaging app using Node.js and MongoDB. It has cool features like LDAP/Kerberos authentication, a REST-like API and XMPP support. Deploy it for free with a single click using Heroku Button and your team will have a complete chat solution in minutes! Brought to you by the team at Security Compass.
Lynx Professional Grills builds premium grills and luxury outdoor kitchens. When they set out to build a smart and connected grill, they were committed to doing something great. They built intelligence and connectivity directly into the Lynx Smart Grill, allowing a user to choose recipes from the SmartGrill app (available on iOS and Android), set preferences, and then have the grill automatically cook the food.
Your steak will be medium rare, your shrimp will be tender, and the roasted vegetables will be perfectly seared. Lynx has a strong predilection for Microsoft technology but they switched to Heroku when they found that performance and reliability were better, and that freeing the dev team of the burden of DevOps (e.g., the overhead of patching and maintaining VMs on Azure for their RabbitMQ server) enabled them to deliver innovative features more quickly.
Come join Heroku at O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference in Boston, MA on March 16-19, 2015. Attend Heroku's Engineer Director David Gouldin's talk on "Realtime RESTful: Have your REST and push it too." We also organized an in-depth and interactive workshop "Architecting Applications for Heroku" presented by our Developer Advocate, Matt Creager. Heroku will be part of Salesforce World Tours in Melbourne, Australia on March 10, 2015 and Amsterdam, Netherlands March 26, 2015.
Heroku is a proud Platinum Sponsor for PyCon in Montreal, Canada on April 8-12, 2015. Come learn about Heroku 101 at a workshop led by David Gouldin. Afterwards, swing by the Heroku booth to chat with Heroku employees, see demos and pick up some cool swag.
We printed a special edition Heroku poster for NodeConf, and it was such a hit with attendees that we wanted to share it with newsletter readers (we reformatted it to work as wallpaper for your favorite device). If you're a Node dev or just a fan of Heroku haiku and graphics download the Node wallpaper set.
