Microservices are a popular way to build small, autonomous teams that can work independently. Unfortunately, by their very nature, microservices only work in the backend. Even with the best microservice architecture, frontend development still requires a high degree of interdependence, and this introduces coupling and communication overhead that can slow down everyone.

Can we take microservice architecture patterns and apply them to the frontend? It turns out we can. Companies such as Netflix, Zalando, and Capital One have pushed the pattern to the front, laying the groundwork for microfrontends. This article will explore microfrontends, their benefits and disadvantages, and how they differ from traditional microservices.
