Hy, This was Really Informative .... Just a quick question: Should DATABASE_URL be kept secret?

Yes, you’re right. The suggestion of @marwane on the above comment is more appropriate. In database.php, just change the default connection to pgsql and the database is configured in heroku config vars. Sorry I have not updated my tutorial and thanks for pointing that out.
