Code of Conduct

These Python Bootcamps are community events intended for learning as well as networking and collaboration. We value the participation of every member of the UC Berkeley community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the bootcamp. 

To make clear what is expected, everyone taking part in these bootcamps—instructors, helpers, organizers, and learners—is required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout, but you may also contact us directly by email at All communication will be treated as confidential.

Code of Conduct

This bootcamp, as it is being conducted on the UC Berkeley campus, is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, religion, or choice of text editor. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

  1. Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

  2. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event.

  3. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants.

  4. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. People violating these rules may be asked to leave the event or be excluded from the online venue at the sole discretion of the organizers, without a refund of any charge that may have been levied.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.

This code of conduct is a modified version of that used by Software Carpentry, which was forked from PyCon, which in turn was forked from a template written by the Ada Initiative and hosted on the Geek Feminism Wiki.
