We write about feature management, continuous delivery, and experimentation.
Teams working with feature flags usually come to the conclusion that a large number of active flags isn’t necessarily a good thing. While each active feature flag in your system delivers some benefit, each flag also comes with a cost. This blog post explains those costs and how to avoid them.
Feature flagging systems can sometimes become victims of their own success. The benefits of feature flagging along with the broad applicability of the technique can lead to rapid adoption within an organization, and pretty soon the number of active flags can start to feel overwhelming. One way to keep your flags manageable is to introduce a categorization system.
Our product and engineering teams recently did a deep dive with our customers to understand how they used the current Split editor. We discovered several ways that the editor could be improved to save customers time and make it easier to use. Here’s a list of improvements we made to the Split editor.
New technology is becoming available for use by enterprises to help them make smarter product decisions. Here are the top 5 trends we see unfolding in 2018.
We demoed our new feature experimentation platform at the event, and the response was overwhelming. Engineering leaders saw the value of controlling the blast radius of a new feature, by only exposing it to beta customers or even doing a percentage-based roll-out to users that match specific attributes.
We’re happy to announce that Split customers can now use us with Go projects! Split lets you see the impact of any feature release on all your key product usage and customer experience metrics. Now, if you have a project where one component is Java, for example, and another component is written in Go (a.k.a. Golang), you can now use Split across the entire project.
We are excited to announce that today, we are launching the Split Feature Experimentation Platform. The platform offers enterprises a secure way to roll out software, target specific features to customers, and measure and analyze the impact of features on key metrics. It is the only offering that can ingest and process the full spectrum […]
Configure Split feature flags directly from Slack or your own internal admin console, or automatically from your monitoring tools with the new Split API.
Building products and creating new features are a team sport. Split promotes collaboration through a wide set of integrations. With corporate chat rooms becoming a mainstay in more and more organizations, integrating with industry leading collaboration tools like Hipchat and Slack was a no brainer for us. We released the Split Slack integration in July. Since […]
This is one post in a series about managing the breakup of a monolithic architecture into a small service. In the first post of the series we looked at some fundamental techniques which allowed us to perform this sort of broad architectural shift as a series of small, safe steps. We started off by looking at an intentionally simple […]
