Server-side micro frontends

This presentation will provide an overview of the microfrontend approach/architecture, and share some learnings from our experience in Standard Chartered Bank.

Microfrontend is an extension of the existing microservice architecture, pushing the concept even further towards the frontend domain. While the prior concept has existed, the evolution of web standards and browser technologies allows for a fresh take on it.

We will start by covering the concepts and principles behind microfrontends: what it is, how it is compared to existing architecture and development approach, and showcase existing adoptions.

Most importantly, we will discuss some of the learnings of a microfrontends implementation in Standard Chartered: what works well, what we felt could have been done differently, and some challenges for the future.
