Code of Conduct

DevOps Sydney Code of Conduct

DevOps Sydney is a community meetup intended for networking and collaboration in the developer + operations community.

We value the participation of each member of the DevOps community and want all community members to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the meetups.

To make clear what is expected, all attendees, speakers, organisers and volunteers at any Sydney DevOps event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout events.

The Short Version

DevOps Sydney is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup 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 at meetups.

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 at DevOps Sydney.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the meetups at the sole discretion of the meetup organisers.

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, 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 behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for DevOps Sydney.

If a participant engages in behaviour that violates this code of conduct, the meetup organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, or expulsion from the meetup.

Contact Information

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a meetup organiser. You may also contact hotel staff and ask to be put in touch with the meetup organisers.

If the matter is especially urgent, please contact any of these individuals:


  • Lindsay Holmwood at +61 432 768 089
  • Mick Pollard at +61 488 490 240

The meetup organisers will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe during the meetups. We value your attendance.
