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. In this webcast led by Jeff Harrel, you'll learn the story of how we changed our enterprise culture and started giving back to the open source community.

About Jeff Harrell

As a UI engineer, designer and product innovator, I've been making applications for the web professionally for years and enjoy all aspects from conceptualization and design to the engineering bits which drive them. Simply put, I love building great products.

During the day, you can find me at PayPal HQ where I lead UI Engineering Architecture. My focus is disruptive change for both products and our technology stack, and I'm excited that we're making strides in this direction.
