Season 1 Episode 20 - The Secret Power of Feature Flags With Steve Rice

Episode Summary

Feature flags are much more than on/off switches to hide in-progress features. They separate releases from your deployments. They allow you to slowly roll out features to your user base. They give you access to easy A/B testing. Join Steve and Allen as they talk about the impressive capabilities of AWS AppConfig, a managed service that controls your feature flags and powers many of AWS services. The two go over the types of feature flags, commonly seen anti-patterns, and discuss how to implement them in your code.
