Hackaday Code of Conduct
Last updated: March 16, 12:19pm PST.

This document is a work in progress: our overall belief is that mutual respect and voices from all walks of life must be heard to create a balanced society. We want our community to be more diverse...whatever your background, we welcome you. We actively support an inclusive environment, and we want you to be a part of it.

All Hackaday participants, including event attendees, speakers, performers, patrons, and volunteers are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Hackaday staff, volunteers, and organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Hackaday is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, knowledge of presented subject matter, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of community members or event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any venue, including talks, parties, Twitter, other social media, our attendee communication channel, and other online media. Participants violating these rules are likely to be sanctioned or expelled from Hackaday and Hackaday events without a refund at the discretion of the organizers.

Discussion or images related to sex, pornography, discriminatory language, or similar, can be seen as harassment, so please be considerate. If you intend to have any images related to sex or pornography in your project exhibit or talk, please ask Hackaday staff if it is appropriate before using.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please let Hackaday staff know immediately.

Hackaday staff will be happy to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference at the venue.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all Hackaday event and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
