[45min] Terminating the frontend monolith - Trygve Lie

More and more are turning to a micro service architecture and are doing so by splitting their backend services into smaller independent services. There are though still one big elephant in the room which not many talk about when it comes to micro services; the frontend.

One approach to solving this is the concept of micro frontends but what is micro frontends, when does it make sense to apply such an architecture and how do one do micro frontends in real life?

In this talk we will take a closer look at what micro frontends are, what they are not and how it works in reality. We will look at the principles and the code is takes to build small reusable frontend services which serve standalone micro applications and how these are stitched together into full pages. We will also look at how to break a large monolith into such an architecture piece by piece instead of rewriting everything in one go. We will also take a look at how design systems and front end framework components, such as React components or Web Components, play into this concept.

This talk introduces Podium which was built by FINN.no to cater for easy development of micro frontends with multiple HTTP frameworks such as Express, Hapi, Fastify, cloud function, React, etc.
