Microfrontends: Seamless Experiences / Autonomous Teams

by Neil Giarratana - Senior Manager at Asurion

What do you do if you have several products developed by different groups in the organization, and you want them all to share a unified experience while maintaining each team’s ability to autonomously develop and progress its own product?
The magic of microfrontends is that they empower software engineering teams to iterate and innovate at scale while presenting a seamless user experience. They decouple monolithic front-end microexperiences in the same way that microservices decouple backend api’s (with many of the same challenges).

Confident React

Talk by Kent C. Dodds - JavaScript engineer and teacher

We want to make sure that when we ship new code, our users can use the application. The best way we’ve found to do that is to write automated tests that run before we deploy a new version of the app. But if our tests aren’t doing exactly what the user will do, then how do we really know that things will work when users interact with our apps? Let’s rethink what it means to ship applications with confidence and what it takes to get there. With improved tools and practices, we can be more certain that what we’re shipping to our users will work the way it’s intended.

Storybook helps you build "UI components in isolation". Combined with Nx, you can have your UI libraries easily "browsable" and testable by your whole dev and UI/UX teams. Nx will give you the tools to generate, build, run, test and migrate your Storybooks across your apps and libraries. And this is something you don't want to miss.
