Tech Session: Serverless-Side Rendering Micro-Frontends

Watch an insightful session from the Serverless Architecture Conference

Apr 15, 2024

The Serverless Architecture Conference hosted a groundbreaking session titled "Serverless-Side Rendering Micro-Frontends," featuring Luca Mezzalira as the esteemed speaker. Despite the passage of time, the relevance of this topic persists, making it worthy of renewed attention.

Leveraging Serverless for Micro-Frontends: A Look Back, A Look Ahead

Building large-scale web applications can be a complex endeavor. Traditionally, monolithic architectures presented challenges in terms of scalability, maintainability, and team agility. Distributed architectures, like microservices, have offered solutions, but what about the frontend?

Enter micro-frontends, a revolutionary approach to building UIs that mirrors the benefits of microservices. This concept has been gaining traction since 2016, and at the Serverless Architecture Conference last year in London, Luca Mezzalira presented a thought-provoking session on “Serverless-Side Rendering Micro-Frontends.”

In this talk, Luca explored how to leverage serverless technologies on AWS to construct a server-side rendered micro-frontend application. This approach empowers development teams to work independently while ensuring exceptional performance for your users.

The Power of Micro-Frontends

Luca delves into the core concepts of micro-frontends, including:

  • Building UIs that represent business subdomains
  • Fostering independent development teams
  • Reducing external dependencies
  • Accelerating development and deployment cycles

Serverless and Micro-Frontends: A Winning Combination

The session further explores the advantages of using serverless technologies with micro-frontends. Serverless removes the burden of managing servers, allowing teams to focus on building innovative features. Luca demonstrates how serverless services on AWS can be harnessed to:

  • Render micro-frontends on the server-side
  • Stitch together the micro-frontends to form a cohesive user experience

Maintaining Team Independence and User Experience

A key benefit of Luca’s approach is that it empowers development teams to own and maintain their micro-frontends independently. This fosters agility and innovation. At the same time, server-side rendering ensures that users experience a fast and seamless interaction with your application.
