in the cloud, no one can hear your outofmemoryerror

pushing an app to the cloud can feel like launching a probe into space. once your project is thousands of miles away you can't bang on it with a hammer or replace broken parts when there's a problem. your debugging efforts must rely on the instrumentation, telemetry, and remote controls included with the app when it was deployed. on heroku, we've gladly done some of that prep work for you. two new heroku features, heroku exec and language runtime metrics, improve your production monitoring, inspecting, and debugging experience on the platform. with heroku exec, you can create secure tcp and ssh tunnels into a dyno, which facilitate ssh sessions, port forwarding, remote debugging, and most popular diagnostic tools. our language runti...

on the rise of kotlin

it’s rare when a highly structured language with fairly strict syntax sparks emotions of joy and delight. but kotlin, which is statically typed and compiled like other less friendly languages, delivers a developer experience that thousands of mobile and web programmers are falling in love with.the designers of kotlin, who have years of experience with developer tooling (intellij and other ides), created a language with very specific developer-oriented requirements. they wanted a modern syntax, fast compile times, and advanced concurrency constructs while taking advantage of the robust performance and reliability of the jvm. the result, kotlin 1.0, was released in february 2016 and its traje...
