Micro Frontends in Action!


Room: Linux

Scheduled at : Thursday 16:00 17:00


In recent years, microservices have become extremely popular. Many organisations use this type of architecture to get around the limitations of large, monolithic backends. Although much has been written about this, many companies continue to struggle with 'monolithic frontends'.

In this session, Peter Eijgermans will describe a trend that breaks down 'front-end monoliths' into much smaller, more manageable pieces. And how this architecture can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of teams.

Finally, he focuses on creating a Micro Frontend application with React and Angular and Webpack Module Federation. Peter starts his talk with his adventure with a rhinoceros in Nepal. That's a monolith you'll need to defeat before moving on to Micro Frontends!

The talk provides answers to the following questions: What is a good Micro Frontends architecture? Why and when to use Micro Frontends? And finally how do we implement Micro Frontends with Webpack Module Federation and other tooling? (Time for live coding!)
