Feature Flags are Flawed: Let's Make Them Better


Comments are closed.

Nice slides & a clear presentation of this topic along with great discussion afterwards.

This was a good talk on a better implementation of future flags. While I did learn a lot, I wish the examples were a little more real-world and in-depth. The library looks cool and I look forward to trying it out sometime.

Good clear talk with good clear slides. Speaker was well prepared for questions.

It was nice to hear about a topic I haven't thought much about.

Good intro of useful library for doing feature flags..

Good overview of feature flags and some generalized pros and cons. Gave a nice bit of background and detail into Zumba's Swivel package.

It may not have been the main concept of the talk, but Stephen hit on some great points about branched logic and cyclomatic complexity in software that caught my attention more than the feature flags themselves (though Swivel looks awesome).

This talk was presented very clearly, with excellent slides and good depth. The presentation generated numerous in-depth questions about the solution presented and I look forward to learning more about it in the future.

Great introduction to feature flags, their many uses, and some shortcomings of the standard implementations. The introduction to Swivel and some of the metrics & AB testing features was also great. Hopefully inspiring those in the audience to use feature flags more.

Interesting idea. I think it might be a fit for something we don't do particularly well where I work.

Very interesting talk. Not just the core material about feature flags, but also about some of the practices at Zumba and their approach at solving problems related to this. It's always great to see real-world examples.
