Software Architecture & Platform SIG: Node.js Deployment at PayPal



  • Description:
    A case study in how PayPal revitalized its tech stack by moving from Java, JSP and proprietary solutions to node.js and dust.js templating. Developer agility was the primary motivation, but along the way the team had to tackle enterprise culture and teach people that JavaScript is no longer a "toy", but a powerful tool to wield.
