Code of Conduct
Coding for Community: A Civility Hackathon
The Civility Hackathon is about working, as a group, to empower ourselves and others to improve our local community through technology. We are committed to providing a safe, welcoming and supportive learning environment for all attendees (students and mentors). This event is designed as a space for people of all different skill levels and approaches to meet and work together toward common goals.

This code of conduct serves to ensure that everybody who participates finds a cooperative and positive experience.

Do Not Harass Others
Any unwelcome behavior, verbal or physical, will not be tolerated.
Respect the Opinion of Others
We expect participants to respect the opinions and abilities of others. Team members should educate others and discuss information respectfully. We are all learning, so afford others—as well as yourself—room to grow.
Fresh Code only - please do not bring in any existing code or work. We ask teams to work together to create a project from scratch.
Empower, Experiment, and find a way for everyone to contribute
Build with your team - give full consideration to all ideas, even if they seem improbable at first. Experiment with new approaches, and don't be afraid to try something that might not work.

I have read and understand the Code of Conduct. I agree to its Principles and promise to uphold them.
Please contact classauthor@hclibrary.org or call 410.313.7750 with any questions or to request accommodations.
