Getting started

Welcome to LaunchDarkly! We're excited to partner with you as you use feature flags to make high-impact changes with minimal risk and maximum control.

Getting started with LaunchDarkly

To get started with LaunchDarkly, you must first create or join a team. To learn more about LaunchDarkly teams, read Joining a team.

Using the dashboard

After you have joined a team, you will have have access to the LaunchDarkly dashboard. To learn how to create a feature flag, read Your first feature flag.

Here are some additional resources for learning how to use the dashboard:

Setting up your SDK

In addition to Dashboard access, you must set up a LaunchDarkly SDK to integrate LaunchDarkly with your code. To learn more, read Setting up an SDK. For information about how to choose an SDK, read Client-side and server-side SDKs.

Next steps

After you join a team, set up your SDK, and begin using feature flags, you may want to ask some questions to learn about your team’s implementation:

  • Do we use both temporary and permanent flags in our code base?
  • What naming conventions and styles are used for our different resources such as flags, segments, projects, and environments?
  • How do we manage flag cleanup?
  • Is there a standardized rollout strategy for new features?
  • What LaunchDarkly role am I assigned and what does that mean?

To learn more about making these determinations, read Best practices.
