==== Topic: TBD <br>  ====
  
Credentials are not passed around when source code is shared.<br> Unintentional exposure of source code does not reveal credentials.<br> Read-access to source code can be much more permissive.<br> Source code can be checked into version control systems without concern for exposure of credentials.<br> It is easier to change credentials without having to worry about changing all instances.<br> Leaving credentials in source code leads to poor password management in general. If changing a credential requires you to change code, you are less likely to want to do it.<br>
