Progress is happy to support UGs & Developer Events
Developer communities are wonderful – a platform for developers to share, learn and improve our craft. We are in the business of making developers successful and have a long-standing tradition of supporting developer communities. If you are a User Group leader, Meetup organizer or putting together one-off developer events – we’re here to support.
Developer communities need variety of support – we’ve devised three programs we feel will serve most needs. Each program has some constraints and benefits – and there are three forms on the right corresponding to each program. If you’re a community leader or event organizer, please find the right program and fill up the corresponding form – we’ll get you hooked up.
If you run a recurring UG/Meetup, this is our starter package. Let’s start things off with an all-digital sponsorship – here’s what you get:

Running a one-off developer event, like a small conference/Bootcamp/Hackathon with under 500 attendees? Here’s what we can do to help:
Have a question? Need to run something by us? We’re all ears. You will be invited to a Slack channel for Community Influencers – here, you’ll have direct access to our DevRel team. If you are running a bigger conference or need customized event sponsorships, please flag down Progress Developer Advocates on social media. We can’t be everywhere and love has to be spread out, but we’ll try our best to help.
We’re hopeful our little support enables you to continue running successful developer UG/Meetups/Events. We appreciate you sharing the love for our tools. And thanks again for everything you do for the developer community!
