Problems with Heroku/C9

Hey all,

I’m currently working on the back end projects for FCC. However, I’m having troubles with C9 and Heroku as the title employs. I have no idea how to deploy a project with Heroku (even after the website tutorial), and my c9 is failing to work because for whatever reason all of my public projects still appear private in my API calls. Is it acceptable to continue along with the back end projects locally? Also if so, how should I go about posting them in the “Completed” section, and will this affect my future matriculation of this program?
