Managing Feature Flags Efficiently

Split Software Engineer, David Burrowes, shares what works for us and passes along some tips for right-sizing practices to your unique situation


This webinar explores a technique for effectively managing feature flags in your code base. Feature flags allow you to separate code deployment from release, enabling increased developer velocity and controlled feature releases. The webinar covers the evolution of the technique, applicable to various technology stacks, and discusses pain points associated with feature flag implementation. The key focus is on moving feature flag evaluation out of main code units, duplicating code versions, and leveraging dependency injection or aspect-oriented programming for improved readability, testability, and ease of adding or removing feature flags. The webinar also highlights the benefits of feature flags in enabling controlled releases, providing measurement capabilities for debugging and performance analysis, and supporting data-driven decision-making for optimizing product success.
