Instead, we suggest using a simpler platform as a service (PaaS) called Heroku, to deploy our backend app. Once you have an account you can push straight to heroku, or deploy from your github repository directly to heroku.
If this doesn't work for you, a public web server will do.

Try to make your code only do what it needs to do and nothing more. Keep your design focused on the project’s current needs.
Everything in your system, from your code and documentation to tool sources, build scripts, and test data, should be stored under version control. It's not compulsory but it's advisable when building the MVP.

Bring your laptops, mobile phones, Kinects, Oculus Rifts, Leap Motions, wearable computing devices, to whatever inspires you or you want to work with.
