Ways of the Herokai

Slides for this presentation

At Heroku we're obsessed with doing things the right way. The "Heroku Way" is a set of principles, workflows, and guiding canons we all subscribe to live and work by. Learn how a small company grew from a startup to power over two million apps, while keeping its culture and its soul. See how we craft code, ship products, and stay productive with remote teams. Meditate on what it means to build a culture, and practice the way of the Herokai.
