Micro-frontends and cloud-native infrastructure
What is cloud-native?
That is a great question! And if you ask different developers what they understand by cloud-native, you will get different answers. In this section, I will try to give you an answer based on -my understanding- of cloud-native but also let you know what the industry as a whole means to represent with the term.
How I understand cloud-native
Cloud-native applications and developers are those that leverage cloud technologies and services, almost exclusively, from code crafting to code delivery and app publishing.
How the industry and the ecosystem understand cloud-native
For many people in the industry, though, cloud-native is all about containers, and particularly linked to Kubernetes, aka K8s, a portable and scalable management system for containerized applications, that automates their development, integrations, deployment and orchestration.
