In a traditional software development workflow, whenever there are updates or feature releases to be made, they are typically tied to a single major deployment to production. As a result, the frequency of feature delivery is slower and a lot riskier because there’s a lot more at stake with each deployment if things don't go as planned.

That is to say that releases should not be tied to deployments but rather, decoupled from them. Due to this reason, in a continuous delivery environment, it is considered best practice to decouple feature releases from deployments as it allows for more incremental releases.

Hence, understanding the concept of decoupling releases from deployment and how feature flags can make that possible is a key for any team.

There's nothing more frustrating than writing up a thoughtful, intentional feature request to your favorite service provider and then not getting a response or subsequent feedback.

At ConfigCat, we understand the importance of feature requests because we know that our service becomes more successful when our customers are happy and their needs are met.

As a result, we keep track of each of our customers' feature requests to help us make informed product decisions and implement the features that matter most.

Most companies believe they understand the customer, only to be shocked when their customers behave differently than what they expected, either intentionally or unintentionally. That's where A/B testing comes in to kick all these doubts and prevent the shock.

We’ll play around to see how A/B testing works with ConfigCat’s feature flag management service to take your experiments to the next level by giving you the ability to remotely control and configure your features without going back to the code.

This is a step-by-step guide on implementing an A/B testing scenario using ConfigCat and visualizing the results in a funnel with Amplitude. There is a working sample application on GitHub if you want to follow along.
