Code of Conduct

The Atlanta Java Users Group (AJUG) dedicated to providing an outstanding conference experience for all attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers and organizers involved in DevNexus (GeekyNerds) regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, financial status, hair color (or hair amount), platform preference, or text editor of choice. We do not tolerate harassment of GeekyNerds in any form. Please treat your fellow GeekyNerds with respect, regardless of the context you’re interacting with them.

Harassment is not appropriate for any conference venue... We expect all GeekyNerds to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media. GeekyNerds asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. GeekyNerds violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference without a refund, and/or banned from future AJUG events, at the discretion of AJUG

Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. Speaker presentations fall under this category and should not use images or examples that would violate the code of conduct.

GeekyNerds must remember that the DevNexus organizers and volunteers are not trained conflict resolution specialists, nor are they security or law enforcement. DevNexus organizers and volunteers will immediately escalate issues around safety, violence, or similar situations to Cobb Galleria staff or law enforcement.

For the protection of GeekyNerds, AJUG will never put its organizers or volunteers in the position of trying to assess whether or not an incident merits escalation. If there is any doubt, we will escalate incidents to the appropriate agency immediately.
