Code of Conduct


Be excellent to each other. If a participant is, in our sole discretion, harassing or otherwise unacceptably impacting other participants' ability to enjoy Devconnect, we at all times reserve the right to remove the offending person(s) from the event without refund.

Don't Shill

Devconnect is designed for builders and developers - We aim to create a welcoming, collaborative space which allows for great networking opportunities. Please respect this space and the opportunity it affords by not aggressively shilling ICOs, investment opportunities, or financial products. If unsure, please ask the staff.

We do not condone any form of harassment against any participant, for any reason.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, any threatening, abusive, or insulting words, behavior, or communication (whether in person or online), whether relating to gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, physical appearance, race, religion, sexual images, or otherwise. Harassment also includes hacking, deliberate intimidation, stalking, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior must comply immediately. We reserve the right to respond to harassment in the manner we deem appropriate, including but not limited to expulsion without refund and referral to the relevant authorities.

Be Respectful to Speakers (and audiences)

Please respect the speakers and participants if you are arriving late to an event and/or getting up to leave an event early — try to cause as little disruption as possible.
