What you'll learn

Understand how Microfrontends work, the benefits of using this paradigm for scaling up teams without decreasing productivity, as well as the pros and cons.


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

During this session, you are going to learn how to:
. Define a Microfrontend architecture
. Use this architectural style to become framework agnostic
. Scale up teams on a single project without losing throughput
. Build and deploy a Microfrontend application
. Analyse the benefits and drawbacks of this architecture

All the points described above will be contextualised with real-world examples applied from my work at DAZN.
