About the Conference


Syntax – is the set of rules and principles that define the combinations of symbols that are considered to be a correctly structured document or fragment in a language.

For programming, the document represents the source code. For markup languages, the document represents data.

What is SyntaxCon?

The Syntax Code & Craft Conference – more commonly referred to as ‘SyntaxCon’ – is Coastal South Carolina’s premier programmer’s code conference. The event is a full stack code conference focused on fostering ongoing education among the developer community and will provide language-agnostic sessions and talks across 3 main tracks:

  • Front-End Development
  • Back-End Development
  • Platforms (game development, content management systems, cloud-hosted services and infrastructure, mobile development, and more).

The event brings together developers, both established and new, to discuss ideas, collaborate, network, socialize and explore job opportunities.
