A few weeks ago, I had the honor of participating in the Adobe ColdFusion Developer Week conference. I wanted to share a topic that I am extremely keen on: Feature Flags. My presentation was called, Feature Flags Change Everything About Product Development - a title that is in no way hyperbolic. The presentation covers what feature flags are; how I use them in my day-to-day work; how critical they've become to the product development workflow at InVision; and, how I can't imaging life without them. I hope that this presentation gets you jazzed-up about how feature flags might take your engineering efforts to the next level!

A lot of the information in this presentation is also covered as prose in my post, Personal Best Practices For Using LaunchDarkly Feature Flags. Of course, you miss some of the color and nuance (and GIFs) that I'm able to express in the video presentation.
I want to give a special shout-out to LaunchDarkly, my feature flag service of choice. It can be pricey; but, it works flawlessly and makes my life so much easier.
And, of course, a huge shout-out to Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee CFML - without you, my life wouldn't be nearly as fun, or efficient, as it is today. You truly make product development a joyful experience!
I've exported my slides as PNGs, which means that you don't get to see some of the fun GIFs that I included. To view the slides in full-fidelity, go to my Google Slides for Feature Flags Change Everything About Product Development →
