Takeaways from our 1 Day Workshop on Micro Frontend Architecture



Web development teams are constantly seeking ways to improve user experience, streamline development processes, and boost overall efficiency. Neointeraction Front end development team has been working extensively on implementing Micro Frontend Architecture (MFA) across various client projects. To delve into this topic & share our team's practical experience, Neointeraction Design organized a workshop on "Micro Frontend Architecture Driving User Experience" conceptualized by our UI lead Shameer M, & facilitated by our frontend engineering team Eldhos Aji(UI/Web Developer), Midhun M(Project Lead). 


What is Micro Frontend Architecture?


Micro Frontend Architecture involves breaking down monolithic frontend applications into smaller, independently deployable, and manageable units called micro frontends. These micro frontends can be developed, tested, and deployed separately, allowing teams to work autonomously on specific features or modules. With this approach applications developed using different frontend technologies can be brought under one single view without the users knowing that each of them are different application.



Benefits Micro Frontend Architecture (MFA)


MFA offers several advantages in web development, including modularity and flexibility, which are crucial for UI Development teams. This modularity leads to rapid iterations and updates without affecting the entire system. Additionally, MFA supports scalability by effortlessly adding or removing micro frontends based on requirements, benefiting UI UX developers and UX UI design teams. This approach also enhances maintainability by simplifying maintenance tasks and reducing the risk of system-wide failures.

Comparing monolithic and MFA architectures 


While monolithic apps can become challenging to scale as they grow, MFA allows for granular scalability, making it easier to manage larger applications. Moreover, MFA improves maintainability by isolating changes to specific micro frontends, minimizing disruptions compared to monolithic systems. Lastly, MFA promotes flexibility and continuous delivery, enhancing agility in web development processes.


Case Study & Live Implementation of MFA


During the workshop, a real-life case study was presented, demonstrating the implementation of MFA in a large-scale enterprise web application. The case study showcased the challenges encountered while managing a monolithic frontend and how transitioning to MFA effectively addressed these challenges. It highlighted the benefits of MFA in improving scalability, autonomy, and maintainability in a real-world scenario. A hands-on task was curated for the workshop to give a practical experience in Micro Frontend Architecture (MFA) using React.js, Angular & Vue.Js frameworks.



Key Takeaways:

  • How to implement Micro Frontend Architecture in vast applications for streamlined development.

  • Understand the transformative impact of Micro Frontend on user experience in web applications.

  • Discover the efficiency of Micro Frontend for project development and maintenance.

  • Learn the roadmap for migrating your existing application to a unified design system.

  • Explore seamless data sharing among Micro Frontend components.

To wrap up, Micro Frontend Architecture is a game-changer in web development, providing incredible flexibility, scalability, and ease of maintenance. The workshop highlighted how MFA can revolutionize user experiences and speed up digital progress.


Embracing MFA opens doors to agile development and ensures web applications stay ahead in the future. Participants from various organizations wanted to understand about power of MFA & how it can be applied to their projects. So this workshop gave them a great opportunity to connect with Neointeraction design frontend development team and solve their challenges related to MFA.


For organizations facing challenges with multiple applications getting integrated, Neointeraction team's frontend development consultants can be hired to implement micro frontend architecture. We also work with the product team to train the team on how to implement a unified customer experience.
