Heroku is a cloud-based platform as a service that lets developers build and manage apps online without any infrastructure. As a fully managed platform, Heroku allows developers to get their app projects off the ground quickly. Heroku supports some of the most popular programming languages, such as Ruby, Java, PHP, and Node. When students enroll in a bootcamp that teaches Heroku, they will learn how to deploy apps to the Heroku platform and the fundamentals of web hosting and programming.

Learning Heroku can elevate coding or development credentials. Many companies, especially startups, require the flexibility and ease of use that the Heroku platform offers. Heroku is a useful skill for software engineers, developers, or programmers. Employment of application developers is expected to grow 21% through 2028, thanks to the high demand for apps, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The average salary for application developers in 2018 was $103,620.

SwitchUp has compiled a comprehensive guide of the best bootcamps to help you kick-start your career as a Heroku developer. Read through the reviews to help you find a program to fit your goals, needs, and budget.
