Micro Frontend Myths

It's been almost four years since we first wrote about micro frontends on the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar. Since then, we've seen interest in the technique grow significantly; we've been involved in many implementations first-hand with our clients, and we've had a lot of great discussions with champions and sceptics alike. As often happens when an idea begins to spread, we've also seen meanings change and misconceptions emerge. 

In this talk, ThoughtWorks Lead Developer, Cam Jackson, will go over some of the most common myths associated with micro frontends, and separate fact from fiction. You'll come away with a better understanding of the nuances and subtleties that await you, should you choose to go down the micro frontend path.

Questions to cover:

  • How do micro frontends impact user experience?
  • How much code reuse can I expect?
  • How much cross-team coordination is really needed?
