Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly

Teamworks implemented LaunchDarkly over a year ago and it has been a game-changer for our product development process. It has allowed our development team to move faster, we deploy code to production with confidence knowing that we can roll out features at our own discretion with feature flags. Our quality standards have improved as well since we can selective rollout features to internal testing accounts in production as a final check before a broader GA release.
  • Feature Flag Management: It's like magic. With a flip of a switch, you can manage feature rollouts to visitors or accounts across the web and mobile applications!
  • Segmentation: Create a segment of visitors or accounts and then use that to target a feature flag rule. Really easy to use and saves so much time.
  • Ease of Use: Seamless copy/paste functionality, really clear status indicators so you can find what is on and for whom.
  • I wish it was better synchronizing the feature flag configurations across the development environments. We want to stage to match production and local dev to match that. When you have many feature flags, this can get a bit difficult to maintain consistently.
  • When a new dev is hired it can be difficult getting them plugged into LD and knowledgeable of that process.
  • Increased number of deployments by a factor of two.
  • Less downtime, the ability to roll back a change using a flag without a dev or deployment has been huge.
  • Improved developer experience.
  • More efficient and productive team.
Copy/pasting account IDs works so well. System status indicators are very clear. Prompts before production changes are nice to ensure that you don't make a bone-headed error by accident.
No performance degradation at all.

Would you buy LaunchDarkly again?


Well suited for SaaS companies that are moving fast and want to have a safety value for rolling out features in a measured and fail-safe manner. Great for companies that experiment. LaunchDarkly may not be well suited for companies that have long development processes. That don't move quickly or that do not care about quality.
