The PSF's comprehensive sponsorship program allows organizations to support community programs financially and delivers a variety of benefits that provide visibility across PyCon US, pypi.org, python.org, and much more:
Outreach & Networking: Access to 2,000+ attendees interested in your products and services to generate qualified leads.
Recruiting: Access to qualified job candidates. If you’re hiring, there’s no better place to find Python developers than PyCon US.
Marketing: Build brand awareness with an audience to the world's biggest and most prestigious Python conference. Additionally, a broad range of promotional opportunities across Python’s ecosystem includes a full 12 months, not just during PyCon US.
Flexibility: The freedom and ease to customize your sponsorship benefits via our online application to meet your goals.
Sponsorships have a tremendous impact!
Most importantly, the Python Software Foundation operates off sponsorships it receives. The more funding the PSF has to work with, the more we can do to support Python and its community. In 2021 the PSF launched two new initiatives that will have a tremendous impact on all users:
In July, the PSF hired the inaugural Developer-in-Residence (Łukasz Langa) to support CPython. A full-time, paid core developer supporting dozens of volunteers that make Python happen has been an enormous help. In addition to supporting volunteers, Łukasz is analyzing usage and workflows to better address sustainability and future funding.
In August, the PSF hired Shamika Mohanan to support Python packaging. Shamika will handle outreach to Python users so the PSF can better understand the landscape, identify fundable initiatives, seek grants, oversee funded projects, and report on their progress and results to improve Python packaging for all users.
The above would not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors over the years. Please help us ensure these initiatives have funding for years to come.
