4:00pm - 5:15pm

Level: Intermediate

Marcel de Vries



Continuous delivery strives to deliver features on demand when they are needed. This can be challenging if you run an operation that needs to be available 24x7. This session will look at different technologies available to separate feature deployments from feature exposure, making it possible to make releasing a feature to the end user nothing more than the flip of a switch. You'll learn how you can use the different technologies like feature toggles and traffic management to implement continuous delivery release techniques like A/B Testing, Canary releases and dark launching.

You will learn:

  • How to work with Feature toggles instead of a branch
  • How to use Microsoft release manager
  • How to use Traffic Management and Deployment slots to create a canary release or a dark launch
