DevNetwork is committed to providing a neutral and harassment-free experience for all event participants – attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, vendors, speakers, staff, workers, and volunteers – regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, race, political affiliation, or religion.
We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form (written, electronic, verbal, etc.). Sexual language and imagery, verbal threats or demands, offensive comments, intimidation, stalking, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact — all are not appropriate for any conference venue or conference-related events.
Additionally, DevNetwork maintains a policy of safe, neutral conversation regarding technology. We do not permit debates regarding gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, race, political affiliation, or religion at our conferences, but rather invite all attendees to converse about technology within a neutral technology forum.
We expect event participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related events. At DevNetwork’s sole discretion, event participants violating this Code of Conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from an event without a refund, and/or banned from future DevNetwork events.
- If you experience or witness a violation of this Code of Conduct, please inform:
Event staff or volunteers (identified by a conference-branded t-shirt); or
- Security staff stationed throughout the venue(s); or
- For virtual events: Event staff (identified as an organizer in the event software platform);
or contact us by emailing [email protected] and our leadership team will address the situation. If you are experiencing an emergency, dial 911.
Event participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Exhibitors in the expo hall(s), sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to this Code of Conduct. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material, and booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
By purchasing or securing any pass to, vending for, sponsoring, or working at any DevNetwork event, you are expressly agreeing to comply with this Code of Conduct and the policies set forth above. Failure to meet Code of Conduct standards will firstly result in a warning, and any additional issues will result in a ban.
We value your attendance and thank all our event participants for help in keeping our events welcoming, respectful, and fun for all.
