Leverage the power of composition to reduce the integration burden of front-end teams

Portland, Oregon (view from Mt. Tabor)

Jens Neuse, founder of Wundergraph, joined me on Software Engineering Radio for a conversation about back ends for front ends, also known as BFF. Jens began by explaining how a heavy integration burden is often placed on front-end development teams. When multiple APIs must be integrated, it can be challenging for client development in web, mobile, and desktop environments. Explaining how APIs should be treated as dependencies, just like packages, the episode explored BFF patterns and use cases, as well as the future potential emergence of a “git for APIs” standard.
