do_action organisers believe our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive hackathon experience for everyone.
Open Source Citizenship
A supplemental goal of this code of conduct is to increase open source citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between what we do and the community at large.
In service of this goal, do_action organisers will be taking nominations for exemplary citizens throughout the event and will recognize select participants after the hackathon on the website.
If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know.
- Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.
- Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and speech.
- Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert hackathon organisers if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in distress.
- Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you help to create do_action and make it your own.
Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any attendees of do_action and related events. All do_action venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.
Harassment includes: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Consequences Of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated whether by other attendees, organisers, venue staff, sponsors, or other patrons of do_action venues.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the hackathon organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the hackathon without warning or refund.
What To Do If You Witness Or Are Subject To Unacceptable Behavior
If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a hackathon organiser as soon as possible.
The do_action organising teams will be available to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the hackathon. Any volunteer can connect you with a hackathon organiser. You can also come to the registration desk in the lobby and ask for the organisers.
We expect all hackathon participants (sponsors, volunteers, non-profits reps, participants, and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all event venues and event-related social events.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for all do_action related queries.
