Okay I am already in love with Heroku.com ( +Heroku, Inc. ).

I sat down and rolled up my sleeves to figure this thing out and they already knew I was coming. The tutorial they have for Node.js is great (https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/getting-started-with-nodejs#introduction). I was able to walk through getting my app going without all the bs-head-banging I normally do to get these services setup the first time.

From here I can start to figure out how to deploy something that is my own. Have to give them a round of applause for putting in the work to walk me through how to get things done. In all fairness I did have to install some software. It was only one piece of software and the pre-requisite was install Node.js which I had because that is what I am developing in anyway. No big woop.

I only get an hour and half or so a day to work if I am lucky so I have to stop for today but o'boy I can't wait to plug away at it again tomorrow. Too much fun.

The next test is to see how much of my code I need to change for my app to run on Heroku...

I've been trying to update my coding skills by using Node.js but now that I want to share my app with others I need to deploy it. Finding hosting for free has been more of a challenge than I expected. Heroku has lifted my spirits. If the free experience was this cool then I am excited for deploying my app.

I'll see how it goes

I have been working on an application with the Node.js and I have come to the point where I want to start sharing it on the WWW and not only spin it up on my dev computer. This is the second Node.js hosting I have tried. I want to try some of the free options before I start looking at paying anything. I am not making anything off this application so I don't want to spend more than my time to get it hosted right now. 

If you know of any free hosting platforms for Node.js please let me know. I already tried +Cloud9 . Cloud9 is sexy and I am not done with it for other things but I don't think it is a good fit for what I need to host at the moment.

AWS basically gives you bare-metal VMs with some readily-available OS options (Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS, etc.) but the drawback is that you need to do a bit of sysadmin work: pulling in the packages you need, doing system updates, etc.

For a hobby project, a micro instance should be sufficient, unless you expect it to become popular.

Heroku is more a platform as a service, so it deals with all the OS-level stuff and you just worry about deploying your code.

Viewscream rocks! I finally supported it on Kickstarter (http://kck.st/1DG0t1s) This is a game made to play online!

I can't say enough good things about this game... you should try it and support it!

LGBT support at Gen Con was awesome! LGBT support was on my mind since March. After seeing stickers like this, I am happy I didn't cancel my tickets out of frustration with the Indiana Governor signing the 'Religious Freedom Restoration Act'

Gamers Rock! Thanks to everyone who supported LGBT by wearing a rainbow this weekend :-)

Never got anything started with OpenShift. It seems in order to create a Node.js application I should install Ruby. I don't code in Ruby. I don't feel like cluttering my dev machine with something I don't use often. So on to the next hosting plan on my list Heroku...

This guide (https://developers.openshift.com/en/node-js-overview.html) was a great little starter tutorial for people using +node.js on +OpenShift . I tried to do things on my own and I kept getting errors. I expect to have issues hobbling my way through this stuff but the Node.js guide was helpful.

Excellent tasting room! They had a poster on the wall of grapes that looked like a periodic table. I finally found that poster but I wish I had bought it when I was there. Everyone was wonderful and I am sure you will have a good time.

I can't believe no one has reviewed this B&B before me. My wife and I stayed here years ago and had a wonderful time. Donna & Felix are wonderful host. I would suggest getting up for the breakfast. Felix will sometimes roast coffee in-house and it smells great. I will carry that memory with me forever. Felix told me about the process over breakfast. I wish they made a cookbook because the food they serve is outstanding. We only stayed for the weekend but loved every minute of it!

If you need a part for your appliance this is the place to go. I have lived in Fort Collins for years and they always have the parts I need. Don in parts knows his business. The staff up front was super friendly too.

I have been buying games and drinking coffee here for over a year. They are great. I was skeptical at first but they are knowledgeable about their games. They also do a wonderful job of making you feel at home.

I am pagan and this is one of the best shops. I go back constantly for oils and incense. This is my favorite store in Denver. Everyone in the shop is friendly if you are. I am leaving Colorado and I will miss this shop the most. May their future be blessed and beautiful!

My wife signed us up to get me off the couch and it is working! I have not worked out in years and this has been great. Boxing is all I have tried so far, but it is more of a workout than I thought it could be. I really enjoy the instructors at this club they are true motivators. I don't usually keep going back to the gym after the first week. But so far it has been two weeks and I haven't missed one my classes yet! Thanks for the encouragement!
