About Converge

ConvergeSE takes place in beautiful springtime in Columbia, South Carolina. Over the course of three days you can dive into intense half and full day sessions, hop from venue to venue downtown taking in sessions on topics from design and development to business and marketing, and finally experience a full day of inspirational talks from an impressive array of speakers. In between all of that, we’ll give you plenty of opportunities to eat, drink and party with the speakers and other attendees.

Check out the full schedule especially Thursday's awesome full day workshops.

This year we're focusing on five areas. This captures the essence of Converge in that we want you to experience all of these, regardless of what you may do from day to day.
