Hello Hashnode folks! We're super excited to be here for this AMA session 😀
The host team is a broad representation of engineering, professional services and management at PayPal, so we can tackle pretty much any question you throw at us.
We're more than happy to discuss our engineering practices, open source work, mistakes from the past and lessons learned, corporate culture at PayPal, "day-in-the-life" questions, our diversity and inclusivity initiatives and more!
Only a couple of topics are off-limits (Legal said so...). We can't give any forward looking statements on company performance, and obviously we can't give away "secret sauce" information.
Looking forward to answering everyone's questions!
-The PayPal Team.
Hi PayPal Devs! It's amazing to see you all going live publicly for the first time (I guess) 😀
How does PayPal write test cases? I mean one single mistake and you can end up having huge loss! 👀
Without going into the details, if you can just explain briefly what goes under the hood, it will be really helpful.
Thank you PayPal folks for doing this AMA. I have three questions.
My first question is very fanboyish. I am a huge fan of Peter Theil and would love to know if any of you have had a chance to interact with him. I know he left the company long back, but does he ever visit the PayPal offices still?
What's your favorite thing about working at PayPal?
If I were to choose a payment solution today for my app, should I use PayPal or Braintree? How are the two products differents given that both are from the same team?
I always had a question when building a software. How do you bring reliability in projects which are very critical like money transaction or things like spacecrafts? There is no(or very less) room to make mistakes. So how do you at PayPal do fault tolerance and ensure that system is consistent no matter what happens.
