Code of Conduct

This hackathon is a community event intended for innovation, collaboration, and engagement with civic data.

We value the participation of each member of the 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 event.

To make clear what is expected, all attendees, speakers, and volunteers at the event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

Be Respectful

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and racist, sexist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for this event.

Be Bold

In the spirit of innovation and collaboration, we encourage every participant to contribute as much as they can to their team’s project. This is the first time that many of the participants will be learning computer science concepts, so don’t be shy! Ask plenty of questions and speak out your ideas. There is no judgment here (except in the final round of judging).

Be Open

We welcome attendees from all backgrounds and skill levels - from “never been to hackathon before” to experts. Be open to any and all ideas, thoughts, and feedback. We are creating big ideas this weekend!

Be Awesome

Do your best. Prepare something to show others and something you can be proud of.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the hackathon at the sole discretion of the hackathon organizers. Additionally, we are not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged personal items that are brought to the event.

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