MageTestFest has some rough edges - metal playing loud through speakers, some curse words where the truth needs to be told. However, offensive behaviour is never to be tolerated. Not at MageTestFest, not at any conference. Here is our Code of Conduct to guide you in how you can let go & have fun, without hurting others.
We believe any community - including the Magento community - should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive conference experience for everyone.
A supplemental goal of this code of conduct is to increase open source citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between what we do and the community at large.
In service of this goal, MageTestFest organizers will be taking nominations for exemplary citizens throughout the event and will recognize select participants after the conference on the website.
If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know. You can nominate someone by letting the Yireo crew know. Alternatively, you can simply give the person you want to nominate a hug right away.
Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative. Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and speech. Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert conference organizers if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in distress. Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you help to make MageTestFest a great event for everyone, including yourself.
Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any attendees of MageTestFest and related events (workshops, hackathon, after-party, other meetups during the event). All rooms and facilities used by MageTestFest may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.
Harassment includes: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated whether by other attendees, evil warlords, organizers, venue staff, sponsors, or anyone involved with the MageTestFest event. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the conference without warning or refund.
If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a conference organizer as soon as possible.
The MageTestFest team will be available to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the conference. Any volunteer at the event can connect you with a conference organizer. You can also come to the special registration desk in the lobby and ask for the organizers.
We expect all conference participants (sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
You can contact Yireo through mail via firstname.lastname@example.org or tweets via @yireo. Alternatively, you can ask any speaker, volunteer or team member and they will be happy to bring you into contact with the organizer.
