If you happen to accidentally upload your AWS API key to Github, you will actually get a strongly-worded email about how bad this is. This happened to me several years ago in a class.

As it turns out, using API keys and passwords in a secure way is actually pretty easy.

@brent_bartlett interesting! did the email come from amazon or from microsoft?

@nydel IIRC, the email came from Github (this was before MS bought them)
