ABOUT US


Headquarters of SYDCON Web Development, Inc.SYDCON has been writing code and developing websites for Chicago area businesses and organizations since 2004. We've worked with clients of all shapes and sizes, including Fortune 500 companies, industry leaders in healthcare, and strategic communications firms.

Our philosophy is simple and effective: we understand code and data and leave the design,strategy, and content to our partners. We believe a collaborative approach to creating custom solutions and help partners articulate their vision through consultative bidding, project mapping and needs assessments. As a developer-driven shop, we approach things a bit differently. The answer is always in the code.

SYDCON has also been trusted with providing programming and application development services for numerous web design firms, marketing firms, and ad agencies.

OUR STORY: FROM GAS MONEY TO FULL TIME


When Dave purchased his first personal computer in the early 90s, he set off to learn everything he could about it. You could say it's in his nature and the result is self-taught programming skills honed over the years. By staying nimble and constantly deepening his understanding of programming languages, Dave leads SYDCON in bringing the best in custom solutions to clients.

Before SYDCON opened its doors officially in 2004, the idea was there. As an embedded lead web developer in the marketing department of a major healthcare company, Dave saw firsthand how technology could work to achieve marketing and communications objectives. What started as a successful freelance business for gas money and vacations has grown into a full-time business with clients all over the United States.
