Damo's Podcast Highlights 2016 #35

I subscribe to many podcasts, you can see the list as it was in 2015 here: Developer podcasts v2 but I thought I would start to keep a weekly log of the episodes that I found interesting or useful in some way.

  • Nicole is one of the key people behind the State of DevOps report (published by Puppet).
  • The conversation digs into some of the findings in that report, including the proof that stability and speed are not mutually exclusive - you can bring new features and products to market quickly while keeping your systems stable.

[.NET Rocks!] Feature Toggles
  • The conversation starts out talking about different kinds of features toggles, starting with the classic one that allows you to build features over time, but keep the code in the trunk, just not visible to the users until you're ready.
  • In some cases, that feature toggle because permanent because it is a tool for ops to reduce load on a server at peak times.
  • Toggles are also a strategy for A/B testing of different features, styling and advertising
