Feature Flags are Essential

Posted at — Jul 3, 2013

when building a non-trivial continuous delivery or deployment system you will absolutely require feature flags for every single change that goes into the system.  This will allow devops or even traditional operations to enable new features or patches as well as providing the ability to disable the patch or feature… and all systems can be synchronized at once.

It’s a trivial feature but so powerful.
