Spotlight on Innovation: Building Resilient Systems with Heidi Waterhouse

Untangling features and making sense of microservices

Heidi Waterhouse

Join us for this edition of Spotlight on Innovation to hear from LaunchDarkly’s Heidi Waterhouse, who will share some of the biggest challenges in feature management. In a perfect world, we’d develop tidy, discrete features that are easy to manage. But in reality, we’re often struggling with a complicated snarl of features that are difficult to test and deploy. Heidi explains how you can use feature management design to build modular, testable, resilient systems—topics which we’ll also be covering at our Velocity and Software Architecture conferences this June in San Jose.

O’Reilly Spotlight explores emerging business and technology topics and ideas through a series of one-hour interactive events. You’ll engage in a live conversation with experts, sharing your questions and ideas while hearing their unique perspectives, insights, fears, and predictions for the future.

In every edition of Spotlight on Innovation, you’ll learn about, discuss, and debate the future. Best of all, you’ll discover what successful companies have in common and how you can follow their lead with small practical steps to transform your organization and prepare for the Next Economy.
