PyCharm & DSF Campaign 2020 Results
For the fourth year in a row, JetBrains PyCharm partnered with the Django Software Foundation on a promotion, “Get PyCharm, Support Django,” where for 28 days users could purchase new individual PyCharm Professional licenses for 30% while the full proceeds went to the DSF. Even with the current economic conditions the campaign was a huge success again this year.
"JetBrains PyCharm has been a major supporter of Django and the Django Software Foundation these past four years. The $40,000 raised during this year's campaign represents 20% of the DSF's annual budget, which goes directly into funding the continued development and support of Django via the Django Fellowship program and Django conferences worldwide. On behalf of the community, our deepest thanks to JetBrains PyCharm for their generous continued support." - Frank Wiles, DSF President
Django Software Foundation
The Django Software Foundation is the non-profit foundation that supports the development of the Django Web framework. It funds the Django Fellowship program, which currently supports two Fellows who triage tickets, review/merge patches from the community, and work on infrastructure. The introduction of this program starting in 2015 has gone a long way towards ensuring a consistent major release cycle and the fixing/blocking of severe bugs. DSF also funds development sprints, community events like DjangoCons, and related conferences and workshops globally.
