What Happened at Corvus CRO This Week

Startup Cincy Week 2019

Participating in Startup Cincy Week 2019

Startup Cincy Week is an annual, week-long series of presentations, roundtable discussions, networking, and job fairs celebrating of the growing entrepreneurial community here in Cincinnati, Ohio. The event brings together entrepreneurs, students, mentors, investors, and teachers from local StartUps, BigCos, and universities. Topics range from starting a business, securing funding, scaling, creativity, technology, design, and more.

This is the second year that Corvus CRO has participated in Startup Cincy Week, and the first year that we’ve presented! Being event volunteers is becoming an annual tradition for us. Here’s a shot of Matt working the registration desk on Tuesday morning:

New for us this year was organizing a panel. Since our main focus here at Corvus CRO is User Experience, we wanted to contribute some design based content. We brought together some of local UX designer friends and colleagues to participate in a roundtable discussion titled “UX for Start-ups: Leveraging experience design to grow your business”. All the presentations were livestreamed and recorded on Cintrifuse’s Facebook page, so here’s a link to our session. Please check it out! A great big thank you to Beau Heubach and Katie Pohlman from Gaslight and Paul Armstrong from Alchemy for joining us.

We’re already looking forward to Startup Cincy Week 2020!

16-Bit Barcade was the place to be again in October. Thanks to all who attended last month’s A/B Testing Happy Hour, and a special thank you to Jessica Hall at Tech Elevator for helping promote the meetup. Several students from the current bootcamp session showed up to discuss front end development and share interesting personal anecdotes about what brought them into tech.

If you’re interested in attending future happy hours or chatting with other fine folks that work in the CRO space, then please check out the Cincinnati Split Testers meetup group. November’s A/B Testing Happy Hour will be here before you know it!

October CodePen Meetup

Building perfect responsive layouts with HTML and CSS

Bryan King, our Director of Design, is one of the co-organizers for CodePen Cincinnati, a local meetup group focused on discussing and teaching the latest in front-end development. For the October meetup, he gave a fantastic presentation on building perfect responsive layouts using HTML and CSS. He performed a love coding exercise demonstrating the power and versatility of flexbox and CSS grid. As always, thank you to Dot Dash for hosting.
