Treat everyone with respect and kindness
Online communities include people from many different backgrounds. The Go contributors are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or similar personal characteristics.
We will be using the GoBridge Code of Conduct (CoC) as our base document for our standards and resolution procedures. In the spirit of being transparent, we will list of our goals, values and expectations. We will also make it clear what you can expect from the organizers.
The first goal of the CoC is to specify a baseline standard of behavior so that people with different social values and communication styles can talk about Go effectively, productively, and respectfully.
The second goal is to provide a mechanism for resolving conflicts in the community when they arise.
The third goal of the CoC is to make our community welcoming to people from different backgrounds. Diversity is critical to the project; for Go to be successful, it needs contributors and users from all backgrounds.
We believe that healthy debate and disagreement are essential to a healthy project and community. However, it is never okay to be disrespectful. We value diverse opinions, but we value respectful behavior more.
These are the values to which people in the Go community (“Gophers”) should aspire.
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
Organizers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior. Organizers have the right and responsibility to correct behavior or remove anyone from the conference who violates the CoC.
We do not believe that all conflict is bad; healthy debate and disagreement often yield positive results. However, it is never okay to be disrespectful or to engage in behavior that violates the CoC.
If you see someone violating the CoC, you are encouraged to address the behavior directly with those involved. Many issues can be resolved quickly and easily, and this gives people more control over the outcome of their dispute. If you are unable to resolve the matter for any reason, or if the behavior is threatening or harassing, report it to an organizer immediately. We are dedicated to providing an environment where participants feel welcome and safe.
Reports should be directed to William Kennedy or any organizer who will be easily identifiable during the conference. It’s William Kennedy’s duty to receive and address reported violations of the CoC. William will work with the other organizers to identify a reasonable outcome to keep the conference welcoming and safe. If for any reason you feel the conference organizers have not lived up to their promise, please email the organizing committee at email@example.com.
