This is another How I'd Build It episode, where listeners send in their feature requirements and we discuss them on the show. In this one we talk about a sailing application where there's a need to keep track of whether members' payments are up-to-date. Adam and I also talk about the YAGNI principle as well as why it's not possible to have high-quality code without tests.
It's commonly accepted that it's better to deploy frequently than to only deploy once in a while. However, an obstacle to achieving this ideal is when you have a long-running feature that can't be released until it's all the way done. In this episode Matt Swanson and I talk about the solution to this problem: release toggles, also known as feature flags.
