PayPal has recently moved their web application stack from a proprietary framework, resulting in weeks of training per developer and large maintenance costs, to an open source-based stack that allows our engineers to come in the door coding. This is the story of how we changed our enterprise culture and started giving back to the open source community.
This talk covers:
I am a web developer who is passionate about all things node.js and open source. I am an active contributor/ maintainer of Krakenjs – Paypal’s open sourced app framework for express. I like playing with new technologies, solving difficult problems and working on game changing projects. To sum up, I love a good challenge that keeps me on my toes.
