A/B testing? Canary Rollouts? Service maintenance windows? All of these and more can be controlled dynamically by using feature flags. In this presentation, we’ll go over the benefits of feature flags and demonstrate how to effectively incorporate them into your codebase and workflows. You don’t need a fancy service to make this happen - there are several php libraries you can use. In this scenario, I will demonstrate the Swivel library using a MySQL database.
