Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly

LaunchDarkly is used by engineering for testing in production. It is used to deploy code to customers in a safe manner.

It addresses the issue of deploying code and allowing a easy way of reverting if something is needed. This is important for StockX where the businesses needs to serve customers around the world 24/7, and a small code change can cause outages which lead to failed orders.
  • Easy to integrate, one-two liners
  • Supports multiple environments
  • No free tier - expensive investment for businesses just starting up
  • More developer confidence
  • Better customer experience
Everything is fairly straightforward to my knowledge.
LaunchDarkly doesn't have a 100% SLA and a few calls will fail. This is perfectly normal. However there is a default mode which LaunchDarkly will fall back to.

Do you think LaunchDarkly delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy LaunchDarkly again?


LaunchDarkly is dependent on a network call so it's good if latency is not an issue.

However for applications that are low-latency, high calls, it will not work because it needs to keep calling LD every time. Think High Frequency Trading.

LaunchDarkly also has limitations when there are certain SQL calls and network calls to LD fails, causing certain constrains to fail to meet.
