Code of Conduct


To ensure that BarCamp 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 BarCamp. Please review these rules carefully, there will be a zero tolerance policy in place at the event:


  1. Excessive Alcohol Usage, or ANY alcohol usage outside of the venue. This is disrespectful and the possible legal ramifications could jeopardize the event for everyone.
  2. Use of illegal drugs in or anywhere near the venue. As in #1, not only is this disrespectful to other BarCampers, it could also lead to the event being shut down. This is unacceptable.
  3. 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.
  4. Aggressive behavior towards other BarCampers, 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 BarCamp
  5. Out of respect for the other campers, and to ensure a trusting and open enviornment, please refrain from any sort of activities that would compromise someone else's privacy or security. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of packet sniffers, local servers that would interfere with the ability to access the internet, and other activities that might compromise personal data.


We want to make BarCamp 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 any of the organizers if you have any questions on this matter and we will be happy to address your concerns.
