Building Front End Applications at Scale

Submitted Aug 28, 2018

Building large scale applications requires careful thought about choice of framework and tools from a development to deployment perspective. One needs to look at how components will be reused, configurations that can be customized per environment , make descisions as to wether the app needs to be server rendered or client rendered or maybe a combination of both. This talk outlines the various goals building and deploying a large scale web application.
The ideas and frameworks suggested in this talk are based on Walmarts journey of migrating from monolithic app architecture to a micro app based development model. This talk will also lean into Walmart’s front end teams’ learnings on what to do vs what not to do.
