Extending your APIs - Cloud and Database Migrations with Python and LaunchDarkly (2 of 2)

Cody De Arkland with LaunchDarkly takes the previous Python video a step further by using feature flags to drive a database migration within the Python based (Flask framework) API. We show migrating a on-premises PostgreSQL database into Amazon Web Services (AWS) Relational Database Service (RDS). This video shows how teams can leverage feature flags to drive dev users through a new database or API configuration while production users are still accessing the existing system. The new deployment can be progressively rolled out to all users, and any problems can be disabled with just the click of a feature flag.
