stackconf 2023 | Cooking up o11y w/ Feature Flagging

Let’s reflect together on the highlights of stackconf 2023. In this blog series, we present our featured speakers and their presentations, which provided us with first-class expert knowledge and inspiring ideas. Today we remember Alayshia Nighten with her presentation “Cooking up o11y w/ Feature Flagging”.

 

Summary

Alayshia explains how feature flags provide the ability to flexibly enable or disable code without having to make source code changes.
Feature flags provide the ability to flexibly enable or disable code without having to change the source code. In combination with Observability (o11y), the result is an extremely powerful combination.
Alayshia shows not only the technical aspects, but also the business implications. The combination of o11y and feature flags enables teams to understand in real time.
This provides unprecedented transparency and understanding of complex systems.
