Feature Flags Book: Use Cases

By on

When your feature flags implementation can store JSON variants, it means that there's no meaningful limitation as to what kind of state you can represent. Which means, the use cases for feature flags are somewhat unlimited as well. As we saw in the previous chapter, using Boolean-type flags to progressively build and release a feature is going to be your primary gesture; but, the area of opportunity will continue to expand in step with your experience.

To help jump-start your imagination, I'd like to touch upon some of my use cases. This isn't meant to be an exhaustive list, only a list of techniques with which I have proven, hands-on experience.


In 2023, I published a book titled, "Feature Flags: Transform Your Product Development Workflow". This book contains everything that I've learned over the last 7 years about integrating feature flags into my product development. But, a static book can only take you so far. In an effort to make the book more interactive, I've created a series of blog posts—one per chapter—that provide a place in which the readers and I can discuss the content. You can purchase the book and / or read a preview of each chapter on the book's mini-site. Feel free to leave a question or a comment down below.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
