    Im having trouble getting the token like at around 37:28 I am following the same steps, yet when I go to sign in I'm brought back to the dev home page. When I make my way back to the console there is no token loaded like his. Anyone else run into this?

    5:26 , these kinds of 'rejected by girl' jokes are getting old and are quite toxic. Weirdly, they seem to be spread everywhere in the media and in commercials. I don't like using the word toxic, it's been overused now, and dishonestly so to push agendas as well; here though, I would really urge anyone thinking of making these jokes to reflect on the deprecation you are inducing to yourself, to the computer geek stereotype, and to men in general. I know it had nothing to do with ill-intent, but they project a negative narrative about men and in this case, about nerdy men. You end up doing as you wish, as you should, but I wanted to give my opinion since this is reaching so many young men and women. Let's not corrupt social dynamics more than they already are in today's culture. Really great video by the way, it helped me a lot.

    Sir, is this API free even for a production level app. I mean is there an API request limit or can we upload an app using their API for free?
