Securing Your Passwords with KeePassXC

Most of us have a hard time remembering our passwords. Do you remember all your passwords? Do you write them in a physical notebook with a pen and paper? Or do you use some proprietary password manager like LastPass or OnePass? This talk will discuss all of these points. We will discuss the pros and cons of all these methods of storing passwords. KeePassXC among all these is a balance-striking mechanism to store your passwords. In addition to the above discussion, we will shift to an actual demo showing KeePassXC and how it works.

Refactoring Legacy Code in Java

A lot of time in software development projects is not spent on the development of new code, but on the maintenance and extension of existing code. The software craftspeople at Nelkinda understand the importance of maintainable code for the success of any software development project. Clean code reduces cost and effort for maintenance. During this meetup, the audience will be walked through the refactoring of a piece of Java code to make it gradually more maintainable. This will be interspersed with questions, discussions, and explanations about various approaches.
