Hello dev.to community! I started making games on the TI-83 to make class more interesting back in middle school. I took a break in college and my 20's to become a rocket scientist.

Hi everyone! I'm Marissa, a software engineer in the frozen flat tundra of Fargo ND. When I'm not at work (anyone else use Thingworx?) I'm often working on various web dev side gigs. On summer weekends you'll find me running the tower computers for the timing system at the local drag strip.

I've been reading here for a while and finally got around to making an account. Everyone seems pretty cool and I'm looking forward to sharing neat ideas.

My current main side project is a suite of tools for DMs for D&D. It's small but it's cathartic to work on something different from what I do at work.

Hi All

I am using the Facebook Graph API to post the link on the Facebook page.

For that, I have generated the "page access token" which is used as the parameter when hitting the API to post the link on the page.
It is working fine.

But,
is it okay to push the access token in git repository by the security perspective or is there any better way to implement it such as getting the access token from the backend using the API call?

Can anyone please help here?

Andrew Bauman

Hi, I'm a scientist (chemical, biochemical) who has always worked with various streams of data covering a range from various types of spectroscopy and mass spectrometry to data from longitudinal drug studies. Eventually, the data rate/volume became so high with improved instrumentation and other efficiencies that I needed to learn programming to scale my work. I currently do work related to health, including data engineering, data science, machine/deep learning in the health, infectious disease, and weight loss spaces (chatbots for the latter case). I'm very interested in ML/DL projects as well as improving my dev/data ops and signal processing skills. My main language is python, though I have some proficiency in R. Just to keep it real (grew up on the command line in pre-hard drive era of computers), I use VIM as my IDE :).

Hello everyone. I'm Samuel Okolo from Nigeria. I studied Mechanical Engr. at school. But today, I am deeply in love with the 21st century trend which I believe is programming. I've learnt up to PHP and I'm presently working on a project with Laravel 5.7; and you know what? It's fun doing the project. I also have the plan of learning Python/Django after my Laravel projects.

In addition, I have the dream of learning Ethical Hacking and Android Development in the nearest feature too.
Your career advice and help will be gladly appreciated.
I joined via Twitter and am glad to be here.
