Code of Conduct

DjangoCon Europe aims to be a welcoming event where people meet in a friendly environment. Accordingly, all participants are expected to show respect and courtesy to other participants throughout the conference.

To make clear what is expected, all delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at DjangoCon Europe 2018 event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code before and throughout the event (including related activites such as the social events).

In short

Longer version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for DjangoCon Europe.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including a warning to the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues, the conference hotel, and conference-related social events.
