Code Of Conduct

Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment and harassment-free experience for everyone.

  • We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants in any form. Please treat all other hackers with the utmost respect. We ask that you act Kindly, behave professionally, and do not insult or put down other attendees. Remember that harassment and racist, sexist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for this event. If at any point you see a fellow hacker being harassed, please talk to the nearest hackathon organizer.
  • Please treat our sponsors, organizers, and judges with the utmost respect. Without them, nothing would be possible. Consider taking some time out of your work to go meet and speak with them. If they come over to talk to you, we ask that you give them a bit of your time. They’re here for you! Show them you appreciate it.
  • Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
  • 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.
  • As this is a hackathon, we like to explicitly note that the hacks created at our hackathon are equally subject to the anti-harassment policy.
  • Sponsors and partners are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.
  • Hackathon staff will be happy to help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the hackathon.

Our code of conduct is based on the Hack Code of Conduct.
