What is Heroku?
Heroku is a cloud hosting platform that allows you to deploy websites and web applications with a simple Git push.
Heroku manages the environment, including installing PHP and Apache on your own virtual server: all you have to do is tell it what to do and Heroku does the rest.
What should I learn Heroku?
If you run your own website, Heroku is a cost-effective and convenient way to host it without having to manage your own server or be dependent on your hosting company to give you the correct version of PHP.
If you are an employee, many companies are converting to cloud platforms such as Heroku. Therefore, having this skill on your CV will increase your employment opportunities and make you more valuable to your existing employee.
