Presentation Abstract
Heroku has deployed over a million web apps. When you've run that many applications, it's hard not to notice when frameworks and developers do things wrong, and when they do them right. We've taken a look at the most common patterns and boiled down the best of our advice in to 12 simple factors that can help you build your next app to be stable, successful, and scalable. After this talk you'll walk away with in depth knowledge of web framework design patterns and practical examples of how to improve your application code.

    Sorry I can't make it, but I know how good Heroku is and our development shop uses it all the time. I don't expect slides/notes/video but would certainly consume them if available.

    Will notes / slides / video be available afterwards for the poor folk who can't make it?
