Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at our conference are required to agree to the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Any questions? You have our contact details in the emails we’ve sent.

TL;DR Be Kind, Considerate and Respectful.

We’re bringing together a diverse group from different experiences and backgrounds to learn about testing. Let’s be good to one another and keep in mind this is a professional conference on software testing. We don’t accept bad behavior. We believe in being kind to one another even when we don’t agree. Safety is a prerequisite for learning and our conference is a place for learning through networking.

We remind everyone that coming from different experiences, everyone’s perspectives are welcome. Please don’t tell programmers how they don’t test or testers how they are not needed if they aren’t programmers. Think of things that are offensive to others and avoid them, discuss them in a good spirit as differences of perceptions coming from our different experiences. We provide a space to seek to understand by dialogue. We seek people listening each other, rather than arguing.

If there is any reason to seek support or resolution, the organizers are here to help.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), chosen work role (e.g. tester) or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the information desk or use the contact details posted around the venue immediately.

We expect participants to follow these rules at the conference venue and conference-related social events.
