COVID-19 has changed all aspects of our lives and is reshaping our future. Nonprofits like the PSF are having to rebuild. With PyCon 2020 and 2021 happening virtually, the PSF is faced with potentially losing $1.2 million USD of expected revenue for those two years. This fundraiser is critically important and the money raised will help the PSF support the tools and initiatives that Pythonistas use everyday.
This years’ fundraiser is focusing on education. We’re excited to be able to collaborate with authors, trainers, and companies from all over the world to raise money for the PSF. In addition, it will help grow a diverse and international community of Python programmers.
Purchase a product/service from any of the below companies and part of the proceeds will go to the PSF. Everyone wins – you get discounts on products and services to level up your Python knowledge, and you help the PSF raise much needed funds! Click on the infographics below to see the offers.
Donate directly to the PSF! No purchase is necessary to participate in the fundraiser. You can donate directly here so that 100% of your donation goes to the PSF.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
