To stage or not to stage: Moving fast to production

Staging environments aren’t great reflections of reality. Instead, investing in CI/CD, feature flags, and QA can skip your code straight to production.

On a Mission to Kill Release Nights

It’s known that modern companies, especially the ones that have adopted agile principles, have achieved a faster degree of delivery cadence, deploy many times per day, diminished the risk of each release, and lowered the time to fix defects in production environments.  Feature flags are one of the few key…

Detect user experience degradations with our newly released RUM agent

Split manages more than 50 billion feature flags changes around the world every day. A recent study shows that about 5 to 6% of feature flags are rolled-back (or killed, using Split terminology in reference to a kill switch) within 30 days of being created. This speaks to the importance…

Measuring server-side changes, and why ‘hope is not a strategy’

It’s easy to think of the user interface as the primary target for new functionality, with product teams eagerly watching important business metrics such as conversion rates and user engagement for improvements after each release. But behind the scenes, engineers are continually working on server-side innovations such as changes in…

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…

What’s Your Experimentation Communication Strategy?

Product teams that don’t take into account a user communication and user feedback collection strategy as part of their experiments risk not getting enough data to evaluate results. This article walks through a couple key communication steps that products should follow to ensure effective and timely product experiments.

Find which feature caused an error with our new Sentry Integration

When we speak to our customers, one of the most common reasons they say they made the move towards feature flags was the need to make sure their releases didn’t cause more errors for their users. By leveraging feature flags to ramp the release of their features to just small…

Top 10 Challenges When Building a Feature Flagging Solution from the Ground Up

Kicking off an internally developed feature flagging system is standard practice for many companies today as feature flags help engineering teams release faster at lower risk. As use cases for feature flags grow, so do the challenges of building an in-house system. This article will explore 10 challenges of building an in-house feature flagging solution.
