Testing in Production With Feature Flags & Continuous Deployment
Testing in production used to be a joke. In fact, it was a popular "Most interesting man in the world" meme. But, as life often imitates art, this meme has become reality. As it turns out, the best tests to learn from are the ones that match production, so developers and software delivery teams often look for feature flag solutions that enable them to test their code and deployments in prod.
In this talk, we will dip our toes into the world of feature flags, beginning with an overview of what feature flags are, how to think about them and why both engineers and business users find them valuable. In addition, we’ll show how to get started with feature flags, and the key things to look out for once you "do it live!"
