OpenFeature is a CNCF sandbox project that brings feature flagging everywhere. When combining the open-feature operator and Kubernetes, we gain the ability to add feature flags inside your workloads, controllers and operators. This creates a new opportunity for organisations to test infrastructure, create context-based feature gating and run large-scale experiments throughout the stack. In this talk, we will look at how feature flagging can be embedded and utilised to gain a level of declarative decision-making that enables cluster operators and engineers the ability to do everything from creating situation networking to managed failure modes. With live demonstrations and step-by-step walkthroughs of real-world implementations, the speaker will bring this project to life. There will be a special emphasis on how this enables experiments and how to act upon the results of those findings to both increase resilience and reduce cost.
