cover image for article: Tech Talks #1 – check what we’ve prepared for you! Tech Talks is our new series where at each event we’ll combine two or three lightning talks around a specific tech area.

The first event will take place next Thursday, June 24th and is dedicated to all #frontend enthusiasts. It’ll focus specifically on  #HeadlessCMS and #MicroFrontends. We meet at the Airmet platform at 6:00 PM CEST. 


  • 6:05 PM Why you should go Headless by Daniel Madalitso Phiri 

“What is the Headless?”, “How do we use it?”, “Is it ready for enterprise?” In this talk, I’ll answer all these questions and more as I take you into Headless CMSs and how they are changing the way we build software systems with a focus on Strapi, the Open source JavaScript Headless CMS.

  • 6:25 PM Consuming headless in the omnichannel networks by Mateusz Strąg

Headless CMS, but what next? What about the front part? How to create a frontend which consumes that content, or even how to build omnichannel networks? In today’s talk, I will show you how to build maintainable enterprise applications using Strapi, Node.js as a backend for frontend, and React, all together inside a Kubernetes cluster.

  • 6:45 PM Code Reusage and Shared Components in Micro Frontends by Vanessa Boehner

One core idea behind Micro Frontends is to isolate Team Code. This enabled isolated builds. But we as developers have learned to stay DRY. A common pitfall with Micro Frontends is to find out which components and logical functions can and should be shared between teams. Another question is how the different parts can communicate. In this talk, we’ll focus on Code Sharing and Communication between Micro Frontends.

  • 7:15 PM Q&A
  • 8:00 PM Networking on Airmeet
