Scaling frontend applications with Microfrontends

Who is this presentation for?

architects, tech leads, CTOs, senior developers

Prerequisite knowledge

architecture knowledge on SPAs or frontend applications in general

What you'll learn

audience is going to understand how microfrontends architecture works, the benefits of using this paradigm for scaling up teams without decreasing the productivity and the PROs and CONs of this paradigm


Microfrontends is a new architectural trend in the development of frontend applications.
it’s an architecture that needs to be explored more in depth because it’s in the early stages but there are already a few companies using it at scale.
During this session we are going to:
. define what a microfrontend architecture is
. how this architecture will allow us to become framework agnostic
. how to scale up teams on a single project without losing throughput
. how to build and deploy a microfrontend application
. analyse the benefits and drawbacks of this architecture

All the points described before will be contextualised with real examples applied in the company I’m working for.

Microfrontends could provide great benefits to your projects as well to your organisation proving a level of decoupling never seen before with Single Page Applications or Universal architectures

I am currently managing DAZN, a sports video platform based on the cloud with millions of users that are watching live and on-demand contents, facing all the typical problems like scalability, resilience and high availability of our platform.

I’m the author of Front-End Reactive Architectures published by APress:

I think the best way to use any programming language is mastering their models, that’s why I spent a lot of time studying and researching on topics like OOP, Functional and Reactive programming.
Also, I’m a huge believer in cloud infrastructures, in the daily job I use AWS applying Serverless and Containers paradigms.

In my spare time, I wrote for national and international technical magazines and editors, I’m also a technical reviewer for APress, Packt Publishing, Pragmatic Bookshelf and O’Reilly.
