Tampa Devs is the fastest growing software development community in Tampa Bay.

As a community-led nonprofit, our mission is to accelerate access to high-quality training and career opportunities in Tampa’s software industry. For free, and for everyone.

Since its inception, Tampa Devs has helped its members acquire new skills and find success in the technology industry. With more than 1,000 active members on and an average attendance of 200+ attendees at our hosted events, we are proud to serve as a thriving hub for Tampa Bay's developer community. And this October, we're excited to host Tampa's first Student and Professional hackathon at Embarc Collective.

Our organization strives to create unique opportunities for the local community to learn, grow, and succeed together. Whether you're a student, experienced developer, community leader, or entrepreneur, our innovative partnerships with local Universities, non-profit tech institutes, and startup incubators mean there's something for everyone at Tampa Devs.

We host monthly technical workshops from industry-leading companies including PwC, Microsoft, and more.

## Sponsoring as a company

If you are a company looking to sponsor, we have a comprehensive sponsor guide available which goes over all the benefits of sponsoring Tampa Devs:

Tampa Devs helps build awareness of your brand to developers in the greater Tampa Bay area. We host technical workshops once a month, with an average range of 50 to 150 engineers in attendance. You’ll receive a dedicated 5 minute time slot at the start of the meeting to address all audience members in attendance that day

Our corporate sponsorship tiers revolve around this benefit. We do a monthly charge rate, but we discount 20% if you pay for the year:

In addition, we offer the following benefits:

- Silver Tier - We put your logo on our homepage on the website. We also grant you access to our job board, which gets broadcasted to our slack channel routinely
- Gold Tier - Same benefits as above, but we make the logos larger on our site
- Platinum tier - Same as above. We also add your logo on our meetup pro network, which is broadcasted to 1300+ members

We also add your logo as well for advertising the technical talk as well and a few other places. Your welcome to bring your own signage and booth equipment too.
