PyCon 2012: Close of Sponsorship applications

This is the strangest announcement - one that I never dreamed of making. Ladies and Gentlemen, PyCon (sponsorship) is full.

The Expo Hall, anyway. At least close enough that we need to do the unthinkable - we need to announce that sponsorship applications for PyCon 2012 will be closing (unless you don't want a booth!).

The Python Software Foundation, and the entire PyCon US 2012 team would like to thank all of our current (and pending!) sponsors. We have an unprecedented 94 sponsors and other partners (such as PyLadies, OSU/OSL and others) not including pending sponsor applications.

This is amazing. It is a huge milestone for PyCon and the foundation and we can not thank all of the sponsors enough. On a personal level, I would like to thank each and every one of them - it has been an honor and privilege working with them and seeing their support for PyCon and the community as a whole.

Therefore I am announcing that we will close the conference to any new sponsorship as of Friday January 20, 2012.

We do still have sponsorship opportunities available until this - you can view our prospectus page for details, or email me with any questions you may have.

Also, remember to check out the PyCon Jobs Fair page - more and more sponsors are listing open positions!

Registration is open - we still have plenty of hotel rooms and tickets - but early bird rates end on January 25th.

Our Diamond sponsors are: Google, Dropbox, and Heroku.

Our Platinum sponsors include: Microsoft, New Relic, Survey Monkey, Nasuni Corporation, Facebook, Nebula, Gondor.io and EventBrite.

Gold sponsors include: ZeOmega, Bitly, White Oak Technologies, DotCloud, OpDemand, CCP Games, ActiveState, JetBrains, Caktus Consulting, Enthought, Cloud Foundry (VMware), Linode, Disqus, Spotify, Leapfrog Online, Loggly, Snoball, Evite, PlaidCloud, Revolution Systems, Canonical, Aldebaran Robotics, Mozilla, Lab305 JP Morgan, PiCloud, Splunk, Milo.com and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Silver level sponsors are: Urban Airship, Cox Media Group, Eucalyptus Systems, Olark, WiserTogether, ESRI, Accense Technology, AG Interactive, Vocollect, 10gen, BigDoor, The Open Bastion, Toast Driven, Net-ng, MyYearBook, Threadless, gocept, Lex Machina, Aarki, FreshBooks, Github, fwix, Imaginary Landscape, OpenStack, devsAr, Stratasan, MapMyFitness, Kelly Creative Tech, Bitbucket, Mailgun, Opscode, Continuum Analytics, Wingware, Emma, Shining Panda, Python Academy, Cisco, Addison-Wesley/Prentice Hall, Kontagent, DataStax, EnergySavvy, O'Reilly and Truveris.

Thank You.

It’s having over 3,000 people in one place to learn from and share with. It’s joining a conversation in the hallway with the creators of open source projects. It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…
