Student Communities 101
Welcome to Dev Shorts. Do reply to me on what you liked this week and what you want to see more. In addition, you could access old issues here!

I have coded Feature flags for most of my releases. Sometimes, it even serves as an alternate way to stop a specific code block from executing😅
Feature management lets you turn new features on/off in production with no need for redeployment.
