We have sponsored contests on DEV which tend to be loved by communities and sponsors alike. We also have podcasts to complement the community, which have sponsors (podcast sponsorships tend to be well received vs other forms of sponsorship) and can be bundled with the contests.

I think our pattern is affective. Good sponsor relations is hard work, but we have a nice process. One important principle for us is to not max these out. This stuff works because we keep things fresh.

Thanks for sharing. How's the Listings performing in terms of revenue?

Dev seems to be the biggest community for developers so far. Why haven't Dev started a recruitment service like hired.com, Vettery, etc?
