Creating a pipeline and staging environment in Heroku with Ruby on Rails

Deploying an application out to the 'Real Internets' can be scary. Setting up a DigitalOcean account, setting up Linux, IPTables, etc. I'm not going to do any of that in this video. We're going to use Heroku. Because lazy. Also, because it's just me and I have too much to do. But really, Heroku is great, and (if you want to use DO / AWS / Docker), that's super cool too. For now, we'll just stick to Heroku as we build out this little project.
In this video I setup a Heroku Pipeline and a staging environment.
