Show your love for the community, win their hearts and minds.

Get in touch

Nancy Asche is the sponsorship contact for DjangoCon US 2012. Please get in touch if you’d like to support this important community conference.


We are committed to providing you the kind of exposure you need to the Django Developer community (by which we mean both those developing Django itself and those using Django to develop web applications of diverse kinds).

Perhaps you just need “mindshare”: sponsor a lunch or a refreshment break, where your organization can be showcased appropriately for the open source world with your tailored materials.

Looking for people to work on your project or with your technologies? Sponsor a sprint (note: sprints are run by the Django Software Foundation. The Open Bastion will simply forward sprint funding directly to the Foundation, who will provide a direct receipt for tax purposes).

Want to hire an experienced professional, or one of this year’s crop of students (student attendance at DjangoCon is heavily subsidized to maximize learning opportunities)? Use a bag insert to ensure all delegates receive an application form and complement this with diamond- or gold-level signage to keep your name at the front of their minds.

Kryptonite and diamond sponsorship includes organizational exposure at all levels of the conference, including prominent logo presence on the introduction to selected video content (for those speakers who permit a commercial endorsement of their talk). All sponsors wanting banners displayed must provide their own banners for positioning by hotel staff at cost.

Tell us what you need your sponsorship package to deliver, and we will work with you to meet your goals. Please contact us with your requests and proposals.
