Your First Feature in Under 5 Minutes

LaunchDarkly's Cody De Arkland ( takes us through bringing our first feature flags into a basic application. Feature driven development allows us to focus on the ways we release features to users, breaking the release process away from the deploy process. We can deploy our new application code and gradually release the features as needed. This opens up really powerful doors in how we develop our software by bringing in concepts like user targeting, segments, experimentation, or many other integrations. While all that is great, it all starts with our first feature flags and feature management. #LaunchDarkly #FeatureManagement #FeatureFlags #UserTargeting #DevOps #AppDev #CICD Subscribe to LaunchDarkly: Learn more about LaunchDarkly: Website: LinkedIn: Twitter: About LaunchDarkly: Feature management allows development teams to innovate faster by fundamentally transforming how software is delivered to customers.
