Building Micro-Frontends


Key Takeaways

1 How to structure a micro-frontend in your web application

2 The technology benefits of using micro-frontends

3 The challenges faced when working with micro-frontends (i.e., solid automation in place or code duplication)

4 The impact of micro-frontends within a team-based structure

5 The micro-frontends best practices

Micro-frontends are the answer to today’s increasingly complex web applications. Inspired by the microservices model, this approach lets organizations break interfaces into separate features managed by different teams of developers. Microservices provide a way for scaling our projects and teams but so far there weren’t many options for frontend development. Micro-frontends are the answer for medium-large frontend applications, scale your team and empower them, de-risk your deployment strategy, innovate inside your team and share with the broader business.

These are the main topics we will cover with this online workshop:

  • Explore the technological impact of micro-frontends in your organization
  • Learn how to identify, generate, and orchestrate micro-frontends
  • Identify areas of an application UI that individual teams can handle
  • Understand and manage the complexity that micro-frontends bring inside an organization
  • Establish end-to-end automation for building and deploying micro-frontends using the strangler pattern
