It is a very good thing for Salesforce to be more focused on Heroku’s future, but the glaring detail shared by Bob Wise today is the era of free on Heroku is over.
Here’s what they announced:
- They launched an interactive product roadmap on GitHub
- They are focusing on mission critical and will discontinue free product plans and delete inactive accounts
- They are starting a program to support students and nonprofits
- They will continue to contribute to open source projects, notably Cloud Native Buildpacks and offering Heroku credits to select open source projects through Salesforce’s Open Source Program Office (OSPO)
