Before Split, Speed and Safety Butted Heads

The team tests every feature before rolling them out, creating fewer user issues. In the past, this meant some features sat in the testing phase for days before they were ready to be released. Now, using Split, Geoff and his team can be safe and fast, having the flexibility to change or experiment with any of their features before they’re rolled out.

From 2 Deployments a Day to 64

Geoff’s deployments used to take place at night, when user activity was low. Now, he and his team use feature flags and constantly deploy, even during peak traffic times. Nothing gets broken and everyone can get a good night’s sleep.

“They were talking about it, you’ve got to pick between resiliency and speed, pick one of those things. And I think that’s a totally false statement. You don’t have to pick one of those, in fact, if you do it right, speed can create resilience.”
