Stop, Drop and Rollback: Creating Safer Releases with Feature Flags
Creating and deploying new software is risky. Whether you're conducting a migration project or unveiling new functionality, we've all seen how easily bugs arise, causing our applications to be poorly delivered and even go out to the wrong people or, worse still, take down our systems altogether.
It's essential to have safety nets in place when things don't go as planned. This talk will cover how you can use flags to cover your bases, define your blast radius, and decide how your application responds if you get met with a disastrous degradation.
In this session, we'll discuss how feature flags can work in both temporary and permanent scenarios to enable you to break the quality triangle and deliver well-built applications promptly at scale.
