Details

Is "deployment" synonymous with "release to all users" in your project? Sometimes that's fine, but sometimes having a bit more control is better. This talk will introduce the concept of feature flags to those who may not be familiar with them, explain how they can be used to separate the concerns of deployment and releasing, demonstrate an example implementation using a Django project, and discuss some best practices for feature flag life cycle management.

Our speaker, Scott Cranfill is officially a front-end web developer at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but lately he finds himself liking Python more than JavaScript, so he's moving into more of a full-stack role. Outside of his day job, he has been contributing to the Wagtail CMS project for a little over a year through code and community support.
