A case study in how PayPal revitalized its tech stack by moving from Java, JSP and proprietary solutions to a Node.js web application stack with dust.js templating. Developer agility was our primary motivation, but along the way we had to tackle enterprise culture and teach people that JavaScript is no longer a 'toy', but a powerful tool to wield. https://vimeo.com/nodesummit/review/85785820/40c2a4811a
