Discussion on: Deploy your app with Heroku

I love the simplicity of Heroku.

But find the cost spikes high outside of the simplest applications.

Even for minor MVPs it just becomes too costly for things that are bootstrapped financially.

And then for larger projects, it gets even crazier unless your pockets are deep and no one is paying attention.

I see your point and agree, Heroku can get pretty expensive pretty fast, however, I think it's a great tool for beginners who want to deploy their apps, to showcase in their portfolio for example. I remember I had all my apps there when I started with coding and never had any problem with the cost. Even now, for a simple API, Heroku is my first choice.

Yup, my entire portfolio (including my portfolio site itself) is on Heroku.
