OpenFeature Online User Group Meeting: There's a Flag for That! A Developer's Primer on Feature Flagging

Date: January 31, 2024
Time: 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT / 7pm CET
Speaker: Andrew Maclean, Developer Advocate at DevCycle


In today's fast-paced world of software development, seamless deployment of new features is paramount. However, achieving this with minimal risk poses challenges for many teams. Enter feature flags - a robust solution offering granular control over feature releases, enabling progressive rollouts, A/B testing, and the instant retraction of features without redeployment. But, what are feature flags, and how can they transform the software development process? Dive into this session to unravel the potential of feature flagging and discover how platforms, and open specifications, like OpenFeature, are becoming instrumental in ensuring efficient and confident software deployments.
