Derek has been working in finance based technology positions for the last 2 decades. He has extensive experience with platform work, having worked on WebOS Televisions for LG Electronics. His deep passion for developer workflow, and tooling. He currently works with PayPal and engagement experiences, providing merchants SDKs built on the latest technologies across all platforms.
This talk will entail our journey at PayPal to develop PayPal's checkout for mobile. The technologies we tried, the pro's and con's of them and the reasons for SYR, a distilled React Native API, with a lightweight implementation, aimed at shared experience developers (SDK developers). SYR allows React-Nativeisque apps to go places they couldn’t have gone before, and supports internalization to ensure that SDKs you build with SYR are as portable as they would be if it was 100% native code.
