Whether or not a member wants to show their full name should be their option and not a requirement.

This is a very nice and well produced video. But it jumps into explaining about how OAuth works without every stating what OAuth is. It assumes that whoever watches the video knows what OAuth is.

It would be nice to have a paragraph or two just explaining what this application is.

It is not my intention to throw stones, but this seems to be a pattern in InterSystems documentation, explaining how something works without first explaining what it is. I guess they assume if they explain how it works, we will understand what it is. Not necessarily so.

I know I am going to get hammered for this, but it is true.


"Poor newbies... their brains might explode of such amount of methods to do such simple thing."

Well said! 

We do give them a number of choices.

But I think that is a good thing, not a bad thing.

That is how we learn.

Thanks for chiming in.

I thought I did mention the InterSystems documentation in my post.

Newbie is not slang and I don't feel it is derogatory or insulting.

Will you change newbie corner articles to beginner's corner ?

--not at this time

I have this same problem on Windows 10, and it can and does mess up Cache.

Herman, very nice, thank you.

If you have no objection, may I use this in a subsequent NewBie's Corner?


To the Developer Community as a whole,

One of the reasons I show older techniques is that many times NewBies go into a group with older standards and ways of doing things. The NewBie needs to know the current techniques but also need to understand the older ways of doing thing. It is not much use to the NewBie to know all the current methods but cannot understand older style code.
