Running Java, Play! and Scala Apps on the Cloud
Heroku is a Polyglot Cloud Application Platform that makes it easy to
deploy Java, Play! and Scala apps on the cloud. Deployment is as simple
as doing a “git push”. This session will teach you how to deploy and
scale Java, Play! and Scala apps on Heroku.
