Announcing the first ever Nx Conf on September 16 & 17, 2021
Nx Conf is a new, online & free-to-attend, 2-day conference featuring members of the Nx team and community. Watch us as we share our ideas and expertise about making development faster, more scalable, and more collaborative.
Does a startup really need a tool like Nx from Day One? Let’s take a look at Nx through the eyes of a startup trying to ship its first project. How does Nx accelerate the growth and adaptation necessary for a new venture?
Micro Frontends “by the book” are managed in different repositories. However, many Angular developers value the comfort and features provided by monorepos. This session will use Nx and Module Federation to show how to get the best of both worlds including sharing libraries between micro frontends, enforcing isolation, and deployment strategies.
One of Nx’s primary advantages is seamless integration of different tools through automation which we roughly categorized into: executors, generators, and plugins. Nx comes with different packages that already have all of these built-in, but you can also leverage the @nrwl/devkit API to create custom generators, executors and plugins to meet the needs of your specific workspace.
If you are part of a large organization or team, chances are you need a design system. A combination of Nx and Storybook will make that process more efficient, more enjoyable, and definitely more scalable. Storybook helps you build "UI components in isolation". Combined with Nx and the architecture of a Nx workspace, you can have your UI libraries easily "browsable" and testable by your whole dev and UI/UX teams.
Community Lightning Talks
Develop at Scale with Nx Monorepos
Presented by Nrwl on September 14th and 15th, 10:30am - 5:30pm ET
We'll kick off the Nx Conf festivities with a 2-day deep dive into all things Nx! The Nx Workshop is the official workshop created and maintained by the Nx Core Team at Nrwl. In these two days, Nrwl architects will cover the breadth of tools and techniques needed for any tech lead or individual contributor to be successful working in an Nx workspace.
Each ticket for the Nx Workshop is $800, and includes both days of the workshop, as well as a free coupon for the Advanced Nx Workspaces course on nxplaybook.com, and a gift box to be shipped to you that includes the coveted "10x Nx Developer" t-shirt.
The workshop consists of short presentations, followed by hands-on codelabs.

What you'll learn
We’ll build up a monorepo from scratch, creating a client app and server app that share an API type library. We’ll learn how Nx uses builder commands and schemeatics to make the developer experience more consistent across projects. We’ll then make our own builders and schematics for processes that are unique to our organization. We’ll also explore the growing ecosystem of plugins that allow for the smooth integration of frameworks and libraries.
All codelabs are available in either React or Angular, but the concepts are the same.
