Overall Satisfaction with LaunchDarkly
We use LaunchDarkly to help hide incomplete features from end users. This allows us to deploy code to production more often, which reduces code conflicts and leads to a healthier codebase
- LaunchDarkly has helped us maintain a weekly release train, which provides a level of consistency for our users
- LaunchDarkly has helped us gate new features, which gives us more ability to test in production, which leads to better tested code
It's very easy to create new feature flags and set them properly. It is more difficult to get LaunchDarkly integrated within a distributed system so that flags can be used. Especially on stateless servers where gating features by user is not easy. Overall though, it is very easy to get started and I like how simple it is to use.
LaunchDarkly is highly available and we have not noticed a single outage over the past year. We have not noticed any difference in load time since a lot of what LaunchDarkly does is in the background. We like that it uses a socket connection to stream updates to our servers

Would you buy LaunchDarkly again?
LaunchDarkly is great when you need to deploy frequently for teams that are experiencing growing pains because there are more and more developers beginning to contribute to the same code base. It is less important when you have very few users or very few developers. It is also less important when you deploy infrequently, because you are more likely to deploy fully complete and tested code to production in that case
