Saw a classmate returning an plain text password from a function to try to push it in a JSON file for an API we have to build for class.

I try to correct him and show him a few things that are better practices and for security, I get yelled at and called a know-it-all for trying to help... I'm so done with people -.-

    Not sure what level of education, but this happens at all levels. Even postgraduate level you will see shit that makes your eyes bleed.

    Its the first thing I learnt. Had some people I know that even hired freelancers that stored passwords flatfile. Had to clean that mess up after them but impressive how dumb people can be.

    Woah..i'm glad that my classmates are ok. We used to argue a lot, but then decided that since we're all suffering while coding, then lets just stop arguing and help each other pass haha
