      Deploying Apps to Heroku with Docker

      Yesterday Heroku released beta support to build and deploy Heroku apps with Docker. It would be an understatement to say that this created quite a bit of buzz inside Appirio.

With so many developers on the topcoder platform (750,000+), Docker mitigates environment issues involved with launching challenges, evaluating submissions and putting code into production.
