PyOhio is special to me -- it's where I gave my first talk. PyOhio is special because you can attend for free, and we've reached out to and helped many who didn't have or couldn't spend hundreds of dollars on a conference to jump start or improve their career in programming.
But while all of us are volunteers, and we have an amazing partnership with the Open Source Club at OSU to help keep costs low, PyOhio does cost money to put on. The last three years our expenses have been about $25,000 per year. That's about $60 per attendee.
The bottom line: We need sponsors!
If you work at a company, or know of a company, or have a philanthropic relative, please let them know that sponsoring PyOhio gets their message out to nearly 500 motivated developers who care enough about programming to give up their Saturday and Sunday to attend.
If you are reading this, could you please:
2. Forward this email to someone who know at a company that would benefit from sponsoring PyOhio.
3. Introduce me (Eric Floehr) to someone who might sponsor or donate to PyOhio.
Thanks so much for your help in making the 10th PyOhio it's best yet!
