feature flags
feature management

Most developers create their first feature flag manually. It usually sits in a config file and it's typically a simple on/off switch. This can be incredibly valuable and useful, but is also extremely limiting. Thinking about feature flags as more than booleans - as a series of strings or numbers or even as JSON objects - gives them a ton of new power and expands their utility into so many areas beyond simple switches. In this session, we'll explore how the different types of feature flags can be used to control different aspects of your applications. We'll even look at how this can enable more complex use cases like rollouts and experimentation.
