Short Version (AKA TL:DR) Our “Code of Conduct” is “Be Excellent to Each Other” AKA the Golden Rule.
We have NO TOLERANCE for physical/verbal/sexual harassment of any person. Any person found to be harassing another person will be required to leave the conference.
Asking questions of a speaker during their talk, to get clarity or debate a point is appropriate – heckling or haranguing the speaker is not appropriate. If you are concerned that something you say may fall under the umbrella of harassment, then please do not speak those words aloud. Harassment is in the perception of the person being harassed. If someone asks you to stop – stop.
If you are having an issue with a BSides participant of ANY badge type, please find a BSides volunteer (Green Shirt/Pink Badge), or Staff (Red Shirt/Red Badge), depending on your level of comfort, and that person will assist you in resolving the issue.
Thank you to BSides Nashville for allowing me to use their CoC while we consider any changes to better fit our conference.
