Facebook Partners With Heroku to Offer Developers Free Sample Application Hosting

Facebook has just announced a partnership with cloud application platform Heroku. It will allow app developers to instantly create sample applications in their choice of language environment for free, rather than having to set up and pay for their own hosting right from the beginning. They’ll then be able to test common app functionalities and edit code to create a full-fledged custom Facebook app. Developers only need to pay if their app grows to a “large amount of traffic or users”
