What we've learned

We've covered the basics of logging in to DEV with a script, and you've learned the basic skills necessary to reproduce these efforts on any site you wish!

So, what's next?

Boy, am I glad you asked! In the video above, we're going to learn how to use environment variables and .env files (so as not to store passwords in the code itself), use selenium webdriver and cleverly placed input() functions to defeat oAuth device confirmations, and upload and puslih our post on DEV!

Anything else?

Of course! At the end, you'll learn where this project is going next. And throughout the video, you can see my quintissential typos, some music, a creepy turn-to-the-camera, and see what happens when I leave the editing of the video to the in-house riffer!! I really hope you enjoy it!

(by the way, this post was uploaded and published to dev using the script we'll be writing in this video!)
