Developer Community Support

Progress is happy to support UGs & Developer Events

We Love Developers

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.

How Can We Help

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.

  1. PROGRESS UG STARTER SUPPORT

    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:

    • 1 Telerik UI for Xamarin license to raffle off
    • 1 Kendo UI license to raffle off
    • $50 Pizza eGift card
    • Food sponsorship if our Developer Advocates/Experts are speaking
    • Access to community Slack channel with Progress DevRel presence

    In return, there are couple of expectations on your end:

    • UG/Meetup needs to be in good standing with verifiable monthly meetings
    • Progress logo should displayed on website & sponsor decks
  2. PROGRESS UG PRO SUPPORT

    Once we have supported you with our Starter program for 3 months, it’s time to upgrade to Pro – here’s what you get:

    • 2 Telerik UI for Xamarin licenses to raffle off
    • 2 Kendo UI licenses to raffle off
    • $50 Pizza eGift card
    • $50 Amazon eGift card
    • Custom shirts, sticker pack, pop-sockets & other swag
    • Food sponsorship if our Developer Advocates/Experts are speaking
    • Access to community Slack channel with Progress DevRel presence
    • Social media support to promote your UG
    • Pro Support renewed every 6 months on demand

    There are some restrictions/expectations with our Pro Support:

    • Physical swag can only be shipped to UG/Meetups within US, Canada & EMEA
    • UG/Meetup needs to be in good standing with verifiable monthly meetings
    • Progress logo should displayed on website & sponsor decks
  3. PROGRESS COMMUNITY EVENT SUPPORT

    Running a one-off developer event, like a small conference/Bootcamp/Hackathon with under 500 attendees? Here’s what we can do to help:

    • 1 Telerik DevCraft UI license to raffle off
    • $50 Amazon eGift card
    • Social media support to promote your event
    • Progress logo should displayed on website & sponsor decks

Talk to Us:

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!
