Canary Release and Feature Release with Feature Flags in Continuous Delivery

Canary releases and feature flag rollouts are two common feature release strategies for testing in production, increasing the safety of continuous delivery, deploying faster and more often. Both aim to reduce the “blast radius” of unforeseen problems and build confidence in a release. Both gradually expose new code to users…
