PayPal drops Java, goes node.js / JavaScript

First: this is not a Java-vs.-AnyOtherLanguage diss, just an article about a very interesting development: Using “frontend-languages” for serious server-side development (and client-side for sure) and even as a replacement for classic servers like Apache/NGINX/etc.

Now, PayPal, one of the the largest sites in the world (and a high-risk application too!), has officially dropped Java and went completely to JavaScript and node.js within 11 months (more on that in the article) on all their “consumer facing web applications”.
