Bsides Seattle Code of Conduct

Rev 1  12/01/2017

Bsides Seattle is an open forum for presenting ideas and discussions. The community welcomes new ideas and viewpoints, for our diversity makes us stronger. We support open, honest discussions and debate. To foster that, we are evolving our conference code of conduct.

We do not condone harassment against any participant, for any reason. Harassment includes deliberate intimidation and targeting individuals in a manner that makes them feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or afraid.

If anyone engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate.

If you experience unwelcome behavior at Bsides Seattle,  please find one of our wonderful volunteers and ask to speak with the coordinator.

By participating in Bsides Seattle Conference, whether as a speaker, volunteer, participant or sponsor,  you agree to abide by our code of conduct.   You also have a VOICE in this.  If you have recommendations for improvement,  please email 

Thank you all.

Happy hacker hugs,

Josh Michaels
