Hey @jochemstoel, I understand your point but I think verifying the necessary API_KEYs at the start of the application would prevent lot's of potential errors and we wouldn't make redundant api calls just to get an error.

This error also could happen during a crutial operation like a purchase or something... I think I'd prefer to check my API KEYS or TOKENS at the start of the application, at least this is what I took from this article.

Also, I understand the article title is a bit provocative but I wouldn't take these kind of things personally. I think author was just trying to get your attention, not to question your skills :D

Have a nice day 🖖
