ConvergeSC web event comes to South Carolina

Editor's note: This is a Guest Post post from Gene Crawford, a web designer from Columbia, South Carolina, and a founding member and organizer of ConvergeSC.

The first-ever ConvergeSC conference takes place on Saturday, June 27, 2009, at Amoco Hall at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia, SC. Web designers, web developers, and marketing and sales professionals whose careers involve the web will converge at this one-day event to gain insight into all aspects of the web industry. We'll be joined some of the best and brightest in our industry, both local and from across the country.

ConvergeSC grew from the need among web-focused groups to build a more connected web community, which doesn't exist formally in South Carolina or the region beyond. We’re spread out, working hard with our heads down. ConvergeSC is an opportunity to educate and inspire each other to do better work. We hope you'll leave ConvergeSC with the mission to build or design something amazing for yourselves and for your clients. Whether you’re a hard core designer or a web or marketing summer intern, ConvergeSC has something for you.

We have some great speakers lined up, including two from the Yahoo! Developer Network: technology evangelist Jonathan LeBlanc and community manager Robyn Tippins. Jonathan will introduce the Yahoo! Query Language (YQL) and provide an overview of YDN; Robyn will show us a thing or two about connecting and engaging with your audience using social applications across the Web.

ConvergeSC is for: Web designers, web developers, business professionals, marketing professionals, content creators, and students.

Where: Amoco Hall, Swearingen Building, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of South Carolina, 301 Main Street, Columbia, S.C.

When: Saturday, June 27. Full schedule and background on our speakers.
