Prerequisite knowledge

  • Mid-level decision influencers (i.e., software architects who are able to decide on implementation patterns but not necessarily strategic direction)

What you'll learn

  • Explore the concept of feature management


Software development has progressed from the world of waterfall to Agile to Agilefall to “we just take the best parts of it.” Meanwhile the development landscape demands faster turnaround times and higher availability than ever before. In the new world where four nines is plebian and data is not measured in gigabytes but gigabytes per second, the facet with the highest inertia is the people at the center of it.

John Kodumal explores the concept of feature management and explains how it can be applied in the DevOps space.

This session is sponsored by LaunchDarkly.
