Switching the news feed to Heroku

Jul 5, 2013 • posted by Michael Hartl

After having some trouble with the refresh times on GitHub Pages, a few days ago I switched the Rails Tutorial News Feed over to Heroku. Some of you may have noticed a large number of unread articles in your feed reader or email summary; this change from Pages to Heroku is the reason why, as it forced a regeneration of the site’s Atom feed. Now I’ve discovered that a few posts got lost in the transition; I’ve added them back, which means another chunk of “unread” items may show up in your reader or inbox. The Heroku site is now working well, though, so I’m optimistic that this kind of thing won’t happen again any time soon.
