To ensure that DrupalCamp is a safe, enjoyable event for all comers, we have devised the following baseline code of conduct.

The following will not be tolerated and will result in immediate dismissal from DrupalCamp. Please review these rules carefully, there will be a zero tolerance policy in place at the event:

  • Excessive alcohol usage.
  • Use of illegal drugs in or anywhere near the venue.
  • While healthy, participatory discourse is encouraged, we will not tolerate abusive, badgering, or baiting arguments, whether during a session or otherwise. Likewise, disrupting the presentation of any individual, either through excessive interruptions, loud talking through a session in close proximity to a session, or attempting to take the stage (or similar presentation area) during another individual’s presentation will be grounds for immediate dismissal.
  • Aggressive behavior towards other DrupalCampers, whether physical or verbal, will not be tolerated. This covers, but is not limited to:
  • Threats of violence
  • Excessive personal insults
  • Sexually aggressive behavior
  • “Stalking behavior” of any sort
  • Harassment of any person present at DrupalCamp or surrounding conventions

We want to make DrupalCamp a safe and comfortable environment for everyone involved, which is why we believe these very basic ground rules are necessary and non-negotiable. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this matter and we will be happy to address your concerns.
