in short: spending a little less time on JS the language, and more on app development

@afeld I think time spent on debugging and testing on a team would be useful and it would encourage and reinforce the valuable tool of reaching out for help, being open to suggestions and critiques. It could work both ways with students degugging/looking understanding another's code and then reversing roles. It seems a lot of the entry-level web dev jobs is coming in and working with someone else's idea of code or especially whenever freelancing. That's my two cents.
even though I'm not a student :) :shipit:

q: for the memory game, are we supposed to use what we learned in the object oriented project to complete?

@clenclen: for this week you just need to get up through V2 (see http://advanced-js.github.io/syllabus/#class-2), but if you want to get a jump on it and try using OOP, go for it!

^ the apply() example from class today

im having trouble authenticating instagram. i signed up for a client and have a client ID but i don't know if i need to further authenticate something?? when i use the client ID from your code it works but when i replace it with my client ID, there is no data coming thru. any ideas?
clenclen
@clenclen
also, question about using the client ID or acces token with js: is having these info on the client side a risk to security? what are best practices ?
ok so after further reading it seems like i need an access token and need to authenticate it wither from server side or client side
clenclen
@clenclen
im trying the client side (implicit) authentication
replaing the client ID with my client Id and the URI with the URI i submitted
and getting this response: {"code": 403, "error_type": "OAuthForbiddenException", "error_message": "Implicit authentication is disabled"}
clenclen
@clenclen
nm i think i got it
lol
u have to disable the implicit oauth
clenclen
@clenclen
hmm is my access code the string that is returned in the search bar?
clenclen
@clenclen
hm, cant seem to get it to work. im noticing that the code from the repository is using a client ID and im trying to use a access token.
Aidan Feldman
@afeld
@clenclen ha, glad we could help ;-)
yeah, you definitely don't want to expose the secret/key on the client side
hence the recommendation to use APIs/endpoints that dont require authorization
https://www.instagram.com/developer/endpoints/ says "We no longer support making requests using just the client_id", but they are lying :-)

@clenclen
hm, still no luck. i think authorized my client info? the authentication page has instructions as to how users could give us permission? is the user the user of the app or are we the developers users? this is so confusing.
well i authorized a token that doesnt seem to work nor the client id
if u have any advice as to how u got your client id to work that would be great
Aidan Feldman
@afeld
you can just use my client ID from the demo page
it may only work on certain endpoints without an access_token
hey students from this term, please drop in the links that were mentioned last night!

Travis Martin
@marti2221
I could really use some help with a learning exercise im attempting (convert imperative fn -> functional one) . Here is a link to a reddit post i made if someone wants to take a look title
