Bill Scott joined PayPal 1.5 yrs back from Netflix. The first thing he noticed was a number of technology choices had been made that inhibited rapid development, experimentation and productivity. The first technology that Bill & his team brought into house was dustjs. The next major technology was the introduction of nodejs. Simultaneously, a number of other open source technologies were incorporated (LESS, requirejs, backbone, twitter bootstrap, bower, etc.). In progress now is a project internally called "Kraken" in which nodejs is being made a full production stack at PayPal. This latter effort will be the subject of Bill's keynote: "Clash of the Titans: Releasing the Kraken | NodeJS @paypal"
