Hey, dev.to crowd.
I'm thinking about writing an article about different user authentication / session management methods and I'd like to take a survey.
How do you authenticate your users? How do you manage user sessions?
Do you use a cookie? With what flags? Do you use the Authentication header? Do you use JWT, Macaroons, some other crazy thing? No judgement in this post if you use session identifiers in local storage - although I'll be coming for you in the follow-up article. Please let me know in the comments!
It is a well-known fact that all human beings are different and unique in their ways. However, no matter how unique and different we are from one another, one thing which remains the same between all of us is our innate nature to commit mistakes.
