About ElixirConf

Code of Conduct

ElixirConf is a community conference created to promote education, networking and collaboration within the Elixir/Erlang/Ruby communities.

We value the participation of each member of the community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Attendees are expected to act with decorum showing respect and acceptance to other attendees throughout the conference, and at all conference events, whether officially sponsored by ElixirConf or not.

All delegates, speakers, exhibitors and volunteers at ElixirConf are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will implement this code throughout the event.

Be honest

Use respectful language and actions

Be inclusive

Respect culture and custom

Consider your actions and act with integrity

Use good judgment and avoid even the appearance of improper behavior

Follow the law

Be accountable

If ever in doubt about a course of conduct, ask yourself:

Is it ethical?

Is it legal?

Will it reflect well on me as well as ElixirConf?

Would I want to read about it in the newspaper or on the web?

If the answer is “No” to any of these questions, don’t do it.

We want to thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
