I just started playing with @render today. Very impressed. Feels very much like @stripe in the early days. So much potential!

@TheBuilderJR profile

Deployed a Rails app to production for the first time in many years 😊 It was fun! Shout out to @render, it was so easy (and pretty cheap for 3+ services and a database!)

@signalnerve profile

My oh my! The ease of use of @render never cease to amaze me!

@Dominus_Kelvin profile

. @render is a breathe of fresh air after a decade of using Heroku

@chriszhu12 profile

i’ve worked on a number of platforms over the years, and i really appreciate the balance between abstraction and flexibility that the @render team has delivered so far. i can’t wait to see what they do in the general application space.

@sixwing profile

We are 🔥 🚀 FireRocket about the new @render Redwood deployment! ✅ included @PostgreSQL ✅ or maybe SQLite for simple, low-cost prototyping ✅ how about auto-deploy on `git push` Run the command below to try it out! (v0.31 required) Complete docs here:

@redwoodjs profile

I created my first @render Cron job! I can't believe how easy it was to set up.

@jordan_vinc profile

Great blog post by @render founder @anuraggoel summarizing the last 12 years: - Heroku stopped innovating from 2010 on (e.g. still no HTTP/2 support) - Many devs moved over to AWS - Platform ("DevOps") Teams have been busy building K8S based internal PaaS

@s0enke profile

Loving everything about @render at the moment. Highly recommend giving it a shot if you're looking for a new hosting service

@_marktomlinson profile

I love how simple @render makes deploying web apps. My account is slowing growing 🤓 😜

@pardel profile

.@render might be the first cloud provider from the ones I have tried so far where I am not terrified of a sudden bill so huge, I might have to declare bankruptcy. Plus the DX is amazing.

@harishkgarg profile

just tried @render – for static sites for now – and it's super impressive in just 5 minutes of playing with it.

@benadida profile

wow, really impressed by @render. everything is so fast and easy

@sonny3690 profile

I love how @render are taking their time to get community feedback. 🔥 There are starting to work on Managed Redis soon. I just had an interview with two employees, speaking on how we use Redis on @render and what we would like to see.

@kevcodez profile

I agree, @render really is better than heroku. No crazy over-provisioned nodes, way higher connection counts, way cheaper, more control. A+ would port again

@harrybrundage profile

@render is my go to. Definitely nails the 2-click setup.

@jones_spencera profile

Render is amazing. It’s like having a DevOps team in your back pocket. I've talked to some of their peeps and from the CEO on down they're *solid*.

@jaredcwhite profile

OK @render free tier is really good. Free node app, free postgres DB, and a really easy UI for getting db creds and adding allowed IP addresses Its so easy in fact I’m testing out more ideas than usual. Also shout out Prisma for working with postgres in Node.

@TwoBrainy profile

I love @render because it takes a few minutes to setup, and now it auto deploys on commit.

@zachcodes profile

Evening #7 working on @GeniePyHQ #buildinpublic Enabled support for deploying to @render! I love the ability to specify an entire application (plus all supporting services) inside a render.yaml file and push code and have everything "just work".

@siddhantgoel profile

I’ve been using @render for a couple of months and is WAY easier than Heroku. Also, extra points for hosting @IndieHackers
