Long Term Flags

Use cases & best practices.

About This Webinar

In many cases feature flags are used beyond a product release or singular event. Long-term flags are switches that you intend to leave in your code indefinitely, and unlike short-term flags, they aren’t technical debt. Long-term flags are an essential part of your system architecture—they can be used to set subscriber tiers, operate as part of a circuit-breaker pattern, or manage the interaction with third-party APIs. Designing your long-term flags is similar to specifying the feature you are controlling, and you may want to use the same process.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Concepts and best practices for long-term flags or toggles
  • Places long-term flags can be especially useful
  • Anti-patterns and items to watch out for in creating long-term flags
