Accelerating Development with Feature Flags
At Subskribe our velocity of feature development is high. Our development philosophy follows the model of Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD). Ideally, when releasing a feature to a specific stage of our environment, we want to isolate that release from the release of any other feature. This enables us to make functionality available only when it has cleared our quality bar. To facilitate this isolation we recently introduced Feature Flags into our environment, leveraging the AppConfig service from AWS.
