Password != password

I learned a very tough lesson this week. And it’s one that I’m quite confident every web developer has experienced. I made a mistake. Yes, me. Shocking, I know. And yes, you too, I’m sure, have made one before too. I went to school early in an attempt to catch up on everything. I decided […]
