PyCharm & DSF Campaign 2021 Results

Posted by William Vincent on May 4, 2021

The fifth annual JetBrains PyCharm promotion in April netted the Django Software Foundation $45,000 this year, a slight increase over the $40,000 raised last year.

This amount represents roughly 20% of the DSF's overall budget, which goes directly into funding the continued development and support of Django via the Django Fellowship program and Django conferences worldwide.

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.
