The goal of the Django Software Foundation is to promote, support, and advance its open-source project: The Django Web framework.
Specifically the foundation's goals are to:
- Support development of Django by sponsoring sprints, meetups, gatherings and community events.
- Promote the use of Django among the world-wide Web development community.
- Protect the intellectual property and the framework's long-term viability.
- Advance the state of the art in Web development.
The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers. The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is a non-profit membership organization devoted to advancing open source technology related to the Python programming language.
Thanks to the generous donations of the Django Software Foundation and the Python Software Foundation, we were able to run a financial aid program and help those attend DjangoCon who otherwise wouldn't have been able to attend the conference.
Thank you DSF and PSF!
