Create A Heroku Account
We'll be using Heroku to put our apps online because it's simple and free for the tier we'll be needing. If you know you already have a Heroku account, you can jump to step 4 on this page.
Step 2: Create an account
Click the big Sign Up button (it's about halfway down the page)
Enter your email address.
Use the same email address for heroku, git, github, and ssh. Be sure to use an email account you can log into immediately.
Step 4: Install the Heroku CLI
Type this in the terminal:
Approximate expected result:
heroku-toolbelt/3.30.6 (x86_64-darwin10.8.0) ruby/1.9.3
heroku/7.6.0 darwin-x64 node-v10.6.0
You have no installed plugins.
The greyed-out text may differ and is not important.
The output could be different, depending on whether this is the first time you've installed the Heroku CLI, but it should always have
heroku in it.
heroku version doesn't work, try the command again in a new terminal window.
Optional Step: Create a GitHub account
Since by now you should have both Git and an SSH key, you can optionally Create a Github account to share code with your friends.
You don't need a GitHub account to complete the InstallFest, or the Intro To Rails, Job Board, or Message Board courses.
