In 2015, SF Python donated 10% of unused sponsorship funds to Lava Mae, a charity providing showers to homeless in SF

PyBay, organized to serve the Bay Area Python community, is the culmination of the highly rated monthly Meetups produced by SF Python.  


Who attends SF Python events?  


Attendees are software engineers in the San Francisco Bay Area, from students to industry professionals, open-source contributors to CTOs, all of whom are passionate about technology and about learning and sharing their knowledge with others. They're leaders in their fields to whom their peers often turn for guidance and advice.


Why sponsor?


By partnering with SF Python in sponsoring PyBay, you're telling the attendees that, like them, you stand out – that your organization shares their love of excellence in technology. This is your chance to influence an exceptionally influential group of professionals with your sponsorship message!  Use this opportunity to:

  • Promote your technical challenges and network for your next hire.

  • Drive adoption of your product.

  • Help SF Python build a stronger Python community, and enable their monthly educational meetups to remain free to Bay Area Python developers.

  • Do good for your community – a portion of the sponsorship funds will be donated to a local charity chosen by the attendees.

Where will your sponsorship dollars go?


SF Python's mission is to build, strengthen, and educate the Bay Area's Python community. Your generous sponsorship dollars will assist in furthering this mission by subsidizing SF Python's expenses in organizing this conference and its free monthly Meetups. To benefit the larger community around us, a portion of the sponsorship funds will be donated to a local charity of the attendees’ choice.
