Fed up with merge conflicts and system failures after a big release? Feature flags can be your lifesaver!
We strive to get new features to the hands of our users as fast as we sustainably can. Some features can take longer to develop and touch other parts of the system.

Equipped with feature flags, we can avoid this nightmare and continuously deploy code changes safely.
This talk consists of practical tips on how to use feature flags as release toggles.
