Do you want to learn a new programming language, database, or computing technology? Or want to teach others your own skills?
This is a group to support your learning projects, whether your project is to learn Python programming, SQL databases, an environment like AWS or Google Cloud, a tool such as Docker, or some other computing technology. Or maybe you want to read a classic computer science text like "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs", or complete a MOOC on Coursera or EdX.
Please suggest the events you'd like to see: project nights? An informal teaching session? A book club? Post a comment on the Discussions tab or message the group administrator with your idea.
Learn Teach Code in Maryland is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of Meetup participants in any form.
All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any Meetup venue, including talks.
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate.
Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the Meetup without a refund at the sole discretion of the Meetup organizers.
Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
The Longer Version
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, persistent following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Further unacceptable behavior will result in escalating sanctions.
Exhibitors and sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors and sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material.
Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. If you think your conversation is making another community member uncomfortable, try to make amends and move forward.
If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the Meetup organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from the Meetup with no refund, or legal action.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a Meetup organizer. Meetup organizers can be found on the Organizers page of the Meetup.com site.
This Code of Conduct is a copy of DevOpsDC's code, which was in turn forked from the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki. The original policy was created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers, and is under a Creative Commons Zero license. It is also based on the PyCon Code of Conduct.
