Developer Orgs are one of the best things that Salesforce provides for free to their users. With a Salesforce Developer Org, users can create and test solutions, they can do pretty much everything that you can in your standard org. Plus you can install packages like NPSP into a Developer org to try it out. Developer Orgs can be really helpful as you can go beyond your learning in Trailhead and get hands-on experience with administrating and developing a Salesforce org. It's one of the things I recommend to people regularly.
But did you know there are Developer Orgs you can sign up for that come with other popular features already enabled for you to work with, to learn, and to test solutions.
This post contains an overview of these Orgs and details on how you can get them.

Heroku is a platform as a service (PaaS) that enables developers to build, run, and operate applications entirely in the cloud. One of the first cloud platforms, Heroku has been in development since June 2007, when it supported only the Ruby programming language, but now supports Java, Node.js, Scala, Clojure, Python, PHP, and Go. For this reason, Heroku is said to be a polyglot platform as it has features for a developer to build, run and scale applications in a similar manner across most languages.
Developer versions of Heroku are available via https://www.heroku.com/home.
