Code of Conduct

All attendees are expected to follow the Code of Conduct at Cincinnati Software Craftsmanship events.


The Cincinnati Software Craftsmanship meetup takes place the first Wednesday of each month (delayed by a week if there is a holiday).

Attending Virtual Events

We host virtual events using both Zoom and Twitch.


5:30 PM ET – Networking and Socialization on Zoom

Before the presentation, we get together on Zoom to socialize and catch up with each other. The Zoom link is posted right before 5:30 in the event description or comment on both Meetup and LinkedIn.

6:00 PM ET – Presentation on Twitch

The main presentation takes place on our Twitch channel.

~7:00 PM ET – Presentation Discussion on Zoom

After the Twitch stream has wrapped up, we get back together on Zoom to discuss the presentation. Often the speaker is able to join and answer questions from attendees. This session usually lasts about half an hour.

This session uses the same Zoom link as the pre-presentation session, which will be posted in the event description or comment on both Meetup and LinkedIn.
