Feature toggle solution architecture

Build real-time feature toggles with Amazon DynamoDB Streams and Amazon API Gateway WebSocket APIs

Feature toggles (or feature flags) are a software development technique allowing developers to programmatically enable or disable features of an application. In practice, feature toggles control a system’s behavior by controlling conditional statements in the application code. Feature toggles have a number of use cases: Selectively enable or disable features – You can use feature […]

AWS Solutions Constructs and the AWS CDK

Rapid and flexible Infrastructure as Code using the AWS CDK with AWS Solutions Constructs

AWS Solutions Constructs provide a library of common service patterns built on top of the AWS CDK. These multi-service patterns allow you to deploy multiple resources with a single object, resources that follow best practices by default – both independently and throughout their interaction.
