SkillsCast

Microservices for the Frontend

4th January 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Microservices Meetup

Microservices have many advantages, but in web development on any complex site, you can easily find yourself in a scenario where you have multiple web applications running on the same web page. This raises several challenges; in particular, the question of how to handle shared client-side libraries efficiently and manage communication between applications. Based on solutions implemented at Tes (www.tes.com), I will demonstrate how to manage an environment where everything is shared: the browser! I will then dive into a set of techniques that can help when building complex client-side applications that cross the boundaries between multiple services. Each technique will be evaluated on its scalability, maintainability, performance and efficiency.
