Code of conduct


All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the following code of conduct derived from :

:no_entry:Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of the following. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion or political views, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

:camera:Photography is encouraged, but other participants must be given a reasonable chance to opt out from being photographed. If they object to the taking of their photograph, comply with their request. It is inappropriate to take photographs in contexts where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy (in bathrooms or where participants are sleeping).

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

:rotating_light:If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of hackathon staff immediately.If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the hackathon organisers may take any action they deem appropriate. This includes warning the offender, expulsion from the hackathon with no refund (if applicable), or reporting their behaviour to local law enforcement.We expect participants to follow these rules at hackathon and workshop venues and hackathon-related social events.





Good information thanks for sharing


Thank you for informing us about your hackathon, I think you, as the organizers, did your best to make it what it is. I also recommend that you inform the participants during the hackathon itself by short tweets on Twitter, as I think it will be convenient for most of the participants given their age. I often see event organizers use twitter to inform participants and have noticed more than once that the accounts that post such tweets have almost 59 thousand subscribers! I am sure this is because the owners of these accounts use the services in order to wind up followers for Twitter.
