CSB Tech Emporium is a mobile-first web development agency primarily focused on creating mobile applications, games, and interactive AR\VR experiences. We also build and deploy stunning responsive websites.
Conville Stephan Brown is the founder and CEO of CSB Tech Emporium. In 2012, He graduated from the College of The Bahamas with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems (CIS): Applications Programming.
The Bachelor of Computer Information Systems is an undergraduate degree focused on the practical application of technology in supporting and adding value to organizations. This covers a broad range of subjects including communications, business, networking, software design, and mathematics.
Upon graduation, he began working as a Junior Systems Administrator at The Medical Pavilion Bahamas:
Jr. System Administrators primarily are responsible for maintaining the day to day operations an organization’s computer network, managing servers, performing installations and upgrades, and conducting backups. The role varies across organizations, as needs arise, and may include providing end-user support, provisioning new hires with equipment and network access, maintenance of business applications, and co-operation with database programmers, analysts and\or other systems administrators.
In June 2014, Stephan was admitted into the Master of Business Administration (MBA) in IT Management through the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). Their virtual classroom enabled him to continue working at home while advancing his pursuit of an MBA. He completed his degree in June 2016.
Throughout those years, as part of his graduate studies, Stephan began seriously exploring the business landscape within The Bahamas tech ecosystem.
Informed by local industry insiders of The Bahamas’ need for a standard in quality mobile app development, the CSB Team persevered through numerous obstacles to become a business that people desire to be associated with.
If you’ve been over to Meet the Crew, you may have noticed that there are a few of us here with the initials CSB. Stephan’s Brother, Corey S. Brown, works as our Legal Counsel, and his sister Chelsea S. Brown is our Social Media Manager.
That’s not all!
The trio’s parents share the same initials, making them CSB5.
CSB Tech Emporium is based in Nassau, Bahamas. When thinking of these tropical islands just off the Florida coast, their tech culture may not always have been the first thing that comes to mind. That, however, is rapidly changing.
Over the past few years, The Bahamas have positioned itself as having a welcoming culture for startups and innovators. Like many island nations, the Bahamas sees the promise in embracing digital tools. Having a smaller infrastructure can also accelerate their transformation effect.
While the digital transformation of the Bahamas has come into focus over the last few years, it’s certainly not new to CSB Tech Emporium.
Having deep roots in technology, CSB Tech Emporium is poised to be a leader in the burgeoning tech transformation across the Caribbean.
CSB understands that for The Bahamas to undergo its digital transformation; it’s crucial to begin with the youth.
Our first term of CODE WITH ME met on Saturdays at Incudesk from February 2 through May 4, 2019.
It is a bright future where the youth grow up learning how to code and become mature programmers as they approach adulthood.
Digital skills are enormously empowering, and this coming generation has the potential to set new standards in the development and create technologies that haven’t yet been conceived for guarding the rights of the individual and enriching the lives around us.
However, our interest in tech goes deeper than any particular application. Our interests are broad, and wherever the cutting edge of technology is to be found, you’ll also find us there.
Besides mobile app and web development, we are most immediately interested in AR/VR (augmented and/or virtual reality), Saas (software as a service), IoT (internet of things), and high-end game development.
With the powers of open-source technology and the world wide web, individuals across the globe are empowered to advance professionally, serve our communities, directly interact with global citizens, and impact the world.
The difficulty in the modern world is not in finding interesting subjects to learn but in finding quality sources of concise information on the subject. The web has become over-run with vacuous clickbait and advertisements posing as news. When learning a new subject, it is required to review dozens of sources to extract the required value.
As tech professionals, while we’re busy building the web, it’s essential to have help digesting the vast repository of knowledge it has made widely accessible.
That’s where the CSB Tech Blog comes in.
@infominer has been helping with that matter for the past year, and we aim to introduce fresh talent.
The web needs more people devoted to studying, curating, and concisely presenting the best quality resources and information on any given subject.
As business owners, we must nurture those qualities in our bloggers by spending a little more and posting less-frequent, higher-quality, information-dense content.
Given enough time and support from the firms that hire them, independent web-researchers (aka web-workers) can produce content with an informative value that is competitive with top data silos dominating the information market today.
Incidentally, those thoughts align with the latest developments in the Google search algorithm. Moreover, while people may enjoy “instant” content that can be consumed in a moment and on to the next, they link to long-form educational content.
We seek to keep and promote that standard, publishing guides, resources, and informative content. Incidentally, due to recent changes in Google’s search algorithm, spammy techniques have fallen by the wayside, and only high-quality content will rise through the search rankings.
It doesn’t matter where you live or come from; we all must participate actively in digital transformation or get left behind.
The CSB Tech Blog has only just begun to explore this topic. Digital transformation is an industry buzz-word used to describe the process of leveraging cutting-edge technologies to avoid disruption.
At the same time as the internet enables the disruption of traditional business practices, it also empowers individuals across the globe to enter the global market.
Recently we learned about how using digital tools is a leading indicator of growth for Small Businesses in the Digital Age.
While there are too many types of computer programming to track, you aren’t required to learn coding to succeed in a digital world. Today, an incredible number of free web applications are available for everything from analytics to content creation.
Long-form educational content is at the heart of SEO best practices and essential to thriving in the digital age. We strive to keep that standard and hope you’ll reach out in the comments with any corrections and additional information.
If you’re looking to create or expand your web-presence, mobile users are a massive and growing user base you can’t afford to ignore. For many, our mobile devices have become extensions of ourselves. They provide instant access to the world and help us to keep track of critical personal data and relationships.
At CSB Tech Emporium, We’re committed to deploying mobile experiences of the highest quality and cultivating a well-rounded understanding of the industry.
However, most websites today are built with various frameworks and themes, which supply a re-usable codebase as a foundation to assist in the process of publishing a stunning website.
WordPress simply can’t be ignored; its open-source content management and publishing platform are so popular that its nearly become an industry standard.
However, Python frameworks such as Django or Drupal are growing in popularity and may become competitive with WordPress.
Such websites created with WordPress and Django are run on back-end databases, generating content on-demand as the user accesses it.
The potential applications of AR and VR are limitless. But let’s get real; most of us are eager for the day to come when we can experience a fully immersive virtual world that captures each of our senses.
We recently released Cameo Tunes, a mobile app that lets you get virtually dressed up while jamming to the music.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality are still young technologies with plenty of room for growth. In years to come, development and hardware will continue to improve, and before you know it, the landscape will overflow with augmented and immersive virtual experiences.
We don’t just want to be there when it happens but want to actively engage in VR’s evolution.
The rise of Bitcoin has taken the world by storm and led to revolutions throughout the tech-world and the Enterprise. While CSB Tech Emporium isn’t directly involved in anything to do with blockchain or cryptocurrency, we are very interested in their development, which is why we initially contacted @infominer.
As his most passionate interest, he’s extensively written on topics in an introductory fashion. Subjects include where to buy cryptocurrency, best practices around wallets and backups, how to become a blockchain developer, earning passive income with cryptocurrency, and crypto-asset classifications. We’ve even reviewed the debates between public vs. private blockchain and the top privacy-focused cryptocurrencies Monero vs. Zcash.
If you’re learning about blockchain, you’ll want to start with: Bitcoin Blockchain, Cryptocurrency.
So by now, you’ve figured out that we are genuinely passionate about technology. It is intriguing to discover the latest advances in quantum computing and baffling to learn how deep learning and neural networks tell Netflix which movies we’d prefer to watch.
How can we use these digital tools to grow our businesses, contribute to our communities and connect with those having complimentary interests?
That’s of primary importance.
Mobile Apps, Games, AR\VR, Stunning Responsive Websites, and Custom Software Should the Need Arise.
