Who is this presentation for?

  • Architects, tech leads, CTOs, and senior developers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of SPAs and frontend applications

What you'll learn

  • Understand how microfrontends work and the benefits of using this paradigm for scaling up teams without decreasing productivity


Microfrontends are a new architectural trend in the development of frontend applications. This architectural style can provide tremendous benefits to your projects and organization, offering a level of decoupling never seen before in single-page applications or universal architectures. That said, microfrontends need to be explored in practice. Luckily there are already a few companies using them at scale.

Drawing on his work at DAZN, Luca Mezzalira explains how to implement microfrontends, enabling you to scale up a project with tens of developers without reducing the throughput.

Topics include:

  • Defining a microfrontend architecture
  • Using this architectural style to become framework agnostic
  • Scaling up teams on a single project without losing throughput
  • Building and deploying a microfrontend application
  • Analyzing the benefits and drawbacks of this architecture
