How Deep Is Your Micro Frontend?
When we talk about micro frontends we often talk about technical topics like integration strategies, communication patterns or best practices.
In this talk, I'll address a more organizational aspect of micro frontends. We'll discuss dimensions. How large should a micro frontend be and what effect does that size choice have in day-to-day work? What benefits or drawbacks do finely sliced applications have compared to coarsely divided systems?
But we'll not only examine the surface size - an important factor when it comes to productivity and fast time-to-market is also the depth of a micro frontend and how other parts of the company align with the structure we want to create in the frontend.
