Communication is Key

The need for clear communication and coordination between engineering and product teams is important. We will demonstrate how feature flags should be used extensively, with most code placed behind them to ensure a safer and more controlled release process. They also touch on the significance of post-mortems to learn from mistakes and improve processes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Trunk-based development simplifies the branching strategy by maintaining a single main branch and using feature flags to control feature releases and hotfixes.
  • The use of feature flags is crucial for controlling both backend and front-end functionality.
  • Feature flags enable a phased approach to deployment, starting with backend components to ensure stability.
  • In the QA environment, coordinating testing with interrelated feature flags can be a challenge, and automation is preferred.
  • Encouraging developer ownership of code quality, deployment, and monitoring is a major organizational theme.
  • Cleaning up dead code left behind by feature flags should be a manual process, with code structured for easier removal.
