Code of Conduct

CSS Dev Conf is for all of us. We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, operating system or text editor of choice.

This is a living policy, and as hosts, we realize that we co-create an environment of inclusion with the help of our presenters, our volunteers, our vendors, and most of all, our attendees. All of us are responsible to maintain a comfortable environment for learning, networking, and inspiration.

  • Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference event or communication channel, including talks and networking events. Sponsors, vendors and other companies involved in the event will not be permitted to use sexualized images, activities, or other material at the conference.
  • Harassment will not be tolerated. Harassment includes (but is not limited to) offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, following, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Intimidation will not be tolerated. Intimidation includes threats of any kind, deliberate or sustained disruption of talks or attendee conversations, stalking, and bullying.

If any participant engages in inappropriate behavior, harassment, or intimidation, we as hosts will take any action we deem appropriate, including warning the offender or removing the offender from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed or intimidated, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. During the conference, you will be able to find staff everywhere—just look for the red name badges. Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

You are also encouraged to email us your concerns at e4h@heatvision.com.
