A common technique used in software development is the use of feature toggles, or feature flags. These tools help us to accomplish continuous integration, delivery, and release on demand. They’re valuable in mitigating the risks associated with introducing changes, allowing us to continuously integrate and deploy with confidence.
What about in the world of data engineering? In this realm, too, feature flags can be quite handy! We can utilize them in our data pipelines to make changes to data ingestion, loading, and transformation processes fearlessly.
