About the Austin SPIN

We are pleased that you are interested in sponsoring the Austin SPIN. Our organization has been supporting Austin software professionals since 1993, with about 500 people now on our membership mailing list. Participants in the organization range from software developers to project managers to those in leadership roles to various specialty roles that enable software to be built and maintained effectively. Our mission statement describes our goals:

The Austin SPIN is a leadership forum for the free and open exchange of software quality and process improvement ideas and experiences. The organization serves as a source of practical, educational, and scientific information for its members, other SPIN organizations, and the general software community.

How You Can Help

The Austin SPIN provides most of its services to members in monthly meetings, enabling members to network with each other and learn about best practices and ways to handle their issues and concerns. Each meeting has a program, generally a speaker or a panel, addressing a topic of interest in today’s software experience. So that we can continue to assist working professionals in developing their skills, we welcome your sponsorship to support meeting logistics, speaker travel expenses, and occasional operations expenses.

Sponsorship is available at four levels, as described in the accompanying table. We appreciate the opportunity to discuss which of those levels is most appropriate to your organization’s mission and interest in participating with this software community.

To discuss this opportunity further, please contact:
