TIL About Makefiles

Today I learned that you can use Makefiles to create simple task-runners. Stuart Feldman invented Make in 1976 to automate build processes for C programs. But you can use it for other languages, too.

How to Deploy a Deno Docker Container to Heroku

The Zero To Mastery Deno Course deploys a Deno docker container to Amazon EC2. The EC2 instances cost money after you’ve exhausted your free 12 months. Plus, Amazon’s cloud services can be tricky. Sometimes, services spike. You quickly exceed your free tier, even for a simple toy app. Let’s deploy Deno to Heroku instead. Heroku’s free tier stays free regardless of usage. The free level is slow, because it will periodically stop to save resources.
