Dark launching


Dark launching is a technique in software development where new features are silently released to a subset of users without their knowledge. This approach allows developers to test functionalities in production environments and gather data before a full-scale public release.



  1. Feature Implementation: Develop and integrate new features into the production environment.
  2. Selective Exposure: Release the feature to a limited audience, often unbeknownst to them.
  3. Data Collection and Analysis: Monitor usage, gather data, and evaluate the feature's performance and stability.
