Heroku's varied and often platform-specific ways of deploying your application can make it difficult to understand the best way to migrate to another Platform as a Service. We're offering this guide to help you understand the flexible options you have for migrating an application from Heroku to Aptible.
Not only does Aptible make managing application infrastructure easier, but it also unlocks turnkey security & compliance benefits. When you’re ready to launch your application, you can deploy a dedicated stack with configuration monitoring and recommendations for further improvement surfaced directly in the Aptible Dashboard.
The guide will help you migrate your Heroku app and Postgres database to Aptible, and we'll provide specific advice for migrating from each of Heroku's deployment options.
Building Aptible’s Design System
Aptible created a design system, Arrow Design System, to be able to create high-quality and consistent experiences for our users. It's owned and maintained by the UX Engineering team which allows us to invest in the user experience independently of product feature requests. Learn more about how Arrow DS allows us to make our software easier to use and give users more reason to trust our products.
In this post, we want to demystify
createSlice by building our own stripped down version of it for new engineers to use as a reference guide when learning redux.
If you have a product and customers, then you also have members of your team who need access to critical systems in order for your company to function. Safeguarding credentials that can access these systems via mechanisms like 2FA, U2F, and key rotation is necessary but not sufficient. You must also monitor for key security events and review each to ensure your protections are working as intended.
Here at Aptible, we’ve solved the problem of monitoring and requesting approval for security events via a lightweight Slack integration we built called Powertrip. With Powertrip, we are able to send Slack notifications to relevant team members about key security events within minutes of the event happening.
We recently rolled out updated HTTP security headers for Comply. Following best practices with HTTP security headers can be a quick way to add an additional layer of security to a website, so we wanted to share our work here in hopes that others might find it helpful.
