Code of conduct

The organization of Codecamp Romania events assumes that most attendees are well-intended and collectively a smart group to work with. Next are a few guidelines about the expectations and the behavior of everybody involved in the conference in a way or another:

  • Our priority is that the Codecamp Romania events are a safe and productive environment for everyone. Most of the sessions will be delivered in English only, therefore we will conduct the conference mostly in English, including written and oral instructions and introduction of speakers and sessions. We may occasionally use Romanian as an auxiliary language in some cases by the event staff.
  • The very nature of the events that gather hundreds of people is of an unpredictable, yet exciting project. Fellow attendees, speakers, professionals and volunteers working at the conference, organizers and collaborators we are all entitled to be welcomed and respected.
  • The organisers are reasonable people. We would love the event to run impeccably, in time and be productive for everybody so that you do not even notice us. Please be patient and understanding should any incident or technical glitch show up, from delays or confusion in registration line, up to quality and availability and quality of audio, Wi-Fi facilities, drinks and refreshments, etc.
  • Please bring any concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff, or contact [email protected]. While we cannot guarantee response times, we will try to help in keeping the event friendly and effective to all attendees.
