In this post I investigate integrating ConfigCat's feature management with an ASP.NET Core 6 web API service and the
Options<T> pattern. I will also focus on using the AutoPolling mechanism built into the ConfigCat client library, to refresh feature flags' state during application runtime.
Between 28th and 30th September, our customers experienced long response times, timeouts, and failing responses from the ConfigCat CDN. Since this was a significant disruption in the ConfigCat service, we want to be upfront about it and share all the information about what happened, what we've done, and what changes we will implement.
Deforestation in the world was an issue long before it became a major problem in the 21st century. For centuries, it has been a struggle to supply our need for timber and produce goods from wood without destroying this forest resource. There is now more than one billion hectares of forest that have been either lost or badly damaged in countries such as Brazil, Indonesia, Madagascar and Mexico.
Sit down, relax, and let me tell you an awesome story about the little country that could. A country that's unapologetically close to my heart. In case the title hasn't already given it away by now, I'm of course talking about the wonderful nation of Iceland.
Manage your feature flags from Visual Studio Code using ConfigCat's new Visual Studio Code Extension.
Good code is one of the most valuable commodities in technology. Code quality can affect everything from code execution time and application load times, to how easy it is to maintain, read, and debug.
It can also play a significant role in your company's competitiveness. If your competitors are spending more time fixing bugs than adding features, then they're losing ground to you.
Code Hygiene goes hand in hand with avoiding Tech Debt and these two should be THE backbone of your company’s philosophy!
At the beginning of this year, Andrew Reeman from Control Point was kind enough to join our conversation about what we actually do differently at ConfigCat, or at least interesting enough so that it only makes sense for our clients to stick with us and for those who didn’t try our approach and products, to do so.
When growing any product or service, it’s to constantly gather feedback from your user base. And I mean constantly, else you risk losing focus from your real clients’ needs and priorities.
To drive this point home, I figured that the best course of action was to collect some valuable insight from a third-party. Joseph Harris, who works at Eucalyptus was kind enough to take the time and offer just that.
Thanks to the latest CI/CD tools and services, software companies can now deliver multiple releases in a week. Over the release process, it's expected that DevOps professionals keep their eyes on the monitoring dashboard and roll-back the deployment on the first suspicion. Since the use of feature flags gets more and more traction, it seems like a good idea to connect those releases and the monitoring tools.
