Morningstar’s mission is to create great products that help investors reach their financial goals.

In this talk, you will learn about how Morningstar's mobile team adopted the BFF (Backend for Frontend) strategy as microservice patterns evolved in the organization. You will hear about how they resisted the trap of building a chatty app using available services, helped front-end teams move quickly, and controlled data refinement through the BFF APIs. They will also discuss the lessons they learned on their journey to a successful launch and through ongoing development.
