Droidcon London 2021: Tell Me Quando - Implementing Feature Flags

About this Event

droidcon is a global developer conference series and community with a focus on the best in Android. The idea behind droidcon is to support the Android platform and create a strong network for developers, designers and organizations


Change is a constant in Android development. You must make your codebase embrace the newest features while keeping a stable app and avoiding creating a merge nightmare for you and your team. How can you do that?

In this session, I will cover what feature flags are, when to use them, how to implement them and how to enable/disable them. I will show how to make an implementation in an existing codebase by doing some live coding. As a bonus, I will show how to test different execution paths.

Key takeaways are:

  • Understand the benefits of using feature flags in your application
  • Learn how to implement them in a real use case
  • Integrate feature flags in your continuous integration
  • Improve your refactoring skills
