Thank you for your interest in supporting the community and joining the DEV / Forem Ecosystem!
To streamline our sponsorship interest process, we have set up the following FAQ.
If you are simply looking to download our media kit outlining all sponsorship options, you can download our prospectus here.
What is Forem? 🌱
Forem is the open source community software that powers DEV and other growing communities.
For more information, please check out Forem.com.
Can I set up my own Forem community?
Absolutely. Forem provides a powerful and extensible way to engage with your community. Many developer-facing organizations are in the process of replacing (or supplementing) their closed and synchronous-first developer communities —typically on Slack/Discord — with the open and async-first Forem platform.
Forem is also a great platform for organizing your private ambassador communities and even your internal teams.
Check out our “Get Started” page for more information on hosting yourself or getting going immediately with our Forem Cloud option.
