Code of Conduct

Why we have a Code of Conduct (CoC)

We are dedicated to create an event where everybody can learn, teach, share, network and have a good time. This can only work if we are inclusive and if we create an environment where everybody feels safe and welcome.

We value discussion and disagreement. And discussions can become heated. But there have to be rules, and there has to be a red line.

In this code of conduct, we lay out those rules and red lines.

Safe Environment

We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).

We invite all participate, and the community, to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone. With your help, this event can be a great experience for everyone!

When we learn about a CoC violations, organisers will hear both sides, and then take action we deem appropriate, such as:
