In the previous episode, the gang at Tourbuzz had “creatively leveraged the power of the cloud” at Heroku to process uploads quickly at a reasonable cost. In Collect Underpants, the Sequel, we’ll see how Heroku performed at cloud scale in the real world and meet our new superhero, Lambda the AWS, to see if he can save the day.
