Supporting Communities, User Groups and Open Source Projects

Maria Sokolova

Here at JetBrains we believe in sharing experience, promoting technologies and offering networking opportunities for professional developers and those just learning the craft. To do our part in supporting the community, we sponsor user groups, events and various educational projects.

If you run a technology user group, or plan to organize a tech event such as a conference, workshop or codecamp, or teach a class, we’ll be happy to sponsor you.

The most up-to-date information about community support can be found in the Supporting the Community section of our website.

User Groups and Developer Communities Support
All communities and user groups related to JetBrains products are eligible for support. User group support requests are not limited to one specific product you can get. As part of community support, you can receive personal licenses for one or more of: IntelliJ IDEA, PhpStorm, WebStorm, RubyMine, PyCharm, AppCode, ReSharper, dotCover, dotTrace Performance, and dotTrace Memory.

To request support for your user group or developer community, please visit the JetBrains community support center, complete the request form and submit it.










Open Source Projects
If you are a contributor to an Open Source project, we’d be happy to support you too. Our Open Source Licenses are available free to true volunteers developing non-commercial open source software. For information on the program, check out the community support center and apply for your license(s).

Other types of Support

Conference & Event Sponsorship
If you organize a physical event including but not limited to conference, codecamp or master class, JetBrains can sponsor you as well. Request support by visiting the JetBrains community support center today.

Academic Institutions — Classroom Licensing
Students should have access to the highest-quality education available. We believe that our tools can go a long way toward helping new developers to understand programming fundamentals and quickly develop their skills. If you are a faculty member and would like to use our products such as IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper, PhpStorm/WebStorm and others in your classrooms for teaching purposes, absolutely free, please send a request through our community center.

We’re standing by to support you. Apply now!

Develop with pleasure!

    If there any special support for Plugin developers?

    As the developer of the BashSupport plugin (which is among the top 15 downloaded) I usually develop with my personal license of IntlliJ Ultimate and test with evaluation versions of Phpstorem, appcode, …
    But once the evaluations run out, this is not possible any more.

    I need my personal license for other things. And I won’t buy the other products just to test them with IntelliJ.

    I usually need to upgrade early because the users want an update for the new major versions and complain 🙂
    For myself I do not necessarily need the new major versions, most of the time.

    I once got a free Ultimate license (which was very kind) but it’s not possible any more, I’m told.

    As you benefit from good plugins for your major IDEs and new versions – is there any chance of better support?

    @Wallaby Please write to the list of products you need licenses for. Hope we can do something with it. 😉

    Hi there

    I am looking for C++ Clion version for personal use. First think, price looks expensive,
    also that amount is for year only. So there is recurring cost as well.

    so overall budget is going up.

    so could you please suggest some options to buy on discount?

      Please note the yearly price includes a perpetual fallback license.
      Also, personal prices are already discounted significantly. Make sure you look at the right prices on the site.
