Not a whole lot to say about my work today, except that I understand zero about authenticating using the OAuth2 protocol. Or, rather, very little. In an effort to figure out what the hell I’m doing, I came across these two resources which helped me somewhat, but I have much work to do yet: https://peach.ebu.io/technical/tutorials/tuto-oauth2-client/ and https://www.pveller.com/oauth2-with-passport-10-steps-recipe/. Furthermore, I’ve started reading Ethan Brown’s "Web Development with Node and Express" to get a better handle of routing in Express.

Comments? Follow me on twitter and drop me a line in response to this tweet:

Day 008: not much to say. Almost didn’t write anything at all. Wrestled with authentication. That’s gonna take me a bit.https://t.co/f6Z5UA1q5s#nonsensemod365 #thatCodingLife pic.twitter.com/vcUUY1xQJh
