The Problems Micro Frontends Won't Solve That No One Wants to Talk About

Everyone wants to ship more software faster, and following the lead of the microservices craze the frontend community has begun to reach for micro frontends as a silver bullet solution. Micro frontends promise large teams the ability to independently ship pieces of applications without code collisions, bug creation, that can be team-agnostic, and with Webpack, Vercel, NX, and others leaning in to offer ways to federate code, this seems to be the way of the future.

But what problems aren't solved by micro frontends? There is a large gap in what large complex teams need to ship better software and what micro frontends are able to provide... and that gap is the basis of this talk. We'll discuss the consequences that arise when attempting to implement MFE architecture that no one seems to want to talk about.
