In the ever-changing world of programming, it can be difficult to keep up to date with all the latest technologies and frameworks. There's always something newer and cooler that you simply must try.

In this article, I'll guide you through the process of dipping your toes into the .NET MAUI framework and incorporating feature flags along the way. If you're already a seasoned .NET developer, this tutorial might reveal a couple of things you didn't know about feature flags, so don't hesitate to read on.

Game development is a complex process that requires constant updates and testing to ensure all ongoing projects run smoothly. When developing games, developers must decide what features to include in their games. However, deciding which features to include can be difficult when there are bugs or other issues with the game. A good way to fix this problem is by using feature flags. By enabling temporary artificial limits on gameplay, game developers can quickly test out changes without affecting their current games. This allows them to quickly fix any issues with the new functionality before making larger updates to their games.

In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to set ConfigCat flags in Unity.

With the rapid growth of software development, managing and releasing new features has become an integral part of our workflows. By using a feature flagging tool, you and your team can remotely release new features and manage what features users can see.

This level of control lets you quickly experiment with new features and roll them back if they prove to be problematic.

Sending your code out into the world can be a nerve-wracking experience. Regardless of how much testing you do beforehand, you’re never quite sure if everything will work according to plan. Even if it’s the case, during an applications life-time, you’ll need to redeploy your code many times. Code redeployment means time, money and a lot of hassle.

Fortunately, feature flags are useful tools that can help reduce the need for code redeployment as well as enable you to test your changes in production without affecting the end-user. In this article, I’ll show you how to make use of feature toggles in a React-like framework. So…

Software development is a really challenging endeavor. A lot of time and energy has to go into making sure that customers like what you're building for them.

Many people make the mistake of thinking that product development mainly consists of coding. Developing a product (ideally) needs specialists, managers, tactics, and various tools. A good idea can indeed go a long way, but if you want to give your product the highest possible chance to penetrate the market, then you need to allocate all possible resources that you have available to throw at it.

This implies that you should work smarter, not harder. Slow traditional deployments often cost more and take up a ridiculous amount of time. Thankfully, integrating Feature Flags into your deployment strategy can speed up this process.

When it comes to releasing new features or changes in software, we can rely on A/B testing for making informed decisions. In this type of testing, we can measure the impact of the new change or feature on users before deciding to deploy it. By doing so, we can carefully roll out updates without negatively impacting user experience.

Feature flags are a great way to control the release of new features in your software. They allow you to easily turn new features on or off without redeploying your code.

However, when implementing a feature flag in an application, we may want to customize its management after the initial release, i.e., schedule an incremental release/delivery strategy that is carried out automatically or schedule future changes to a flag's targeting rule that can take effect at specific time intervals.

For example:

  • Activate a flag’s config by date and time. For instance, release a feature at noon on a Sunday afternoon.
  • Gradually increase the discount value of an ongoing promotion at specific times of weekdays.
  • Enable a feature only on weekends or on weekdays.
  • Three days from today, turn on a feature for internal testing and enable it for public use a week later.

The world population continues to grow, and so does the number of house pets. While we all hope most of them have a good quality of life, some don't have a home. To combat this, we can make an animal care app. In this blog post, the app's objective is to increase the pet adoption rate. We will change the color of our call-to-action button and measure the click-through rate of each button version using A/B testing.

The goal of software development workflows is geared toward releasing new features and updates, which can sometimes cause issues if not handled correctly. In my opinion, using feature flags has proven to be essential in situations like these. You can use them to easily deploy new features, and if there are bugs you can quickly turn a feature off, then turned it on again when they have been fixed without having to redeploy the app.
