Community Code of Conduct

Everyone participating in the Out of Office Hours community is required to agree to the following code of conduct. This includes all volunteers, newcomers, engineers, designers, writers, as well as Out of Office Slack channel members and attendees at Out of Office Hours events.

Out of Office Hours will enforce this code during in person and online events throughout the year. We expect cooperation from everyone to ensure a safe, diverse, and welcoming environment.

The Condensed Version

Out of Office Hours is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion (or lack thereof), or political affiliation. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Sexist, racist, discriminatory, or harassing language and imagery is not appropriate in the Out of Office Hours community, in person or online. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from Out of Office Hours events, the Slack channel, the Github account, the Medium Publication, and all future events without a refund (if applicable) at the discretion of Out of Office Hours organizers.

The Less Condensed Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, 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 behavior are required to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behavior, Out of Office Hours may take any action they deem appropriate, from warning the offender to immediately expelling the offender with no refund (if applicable).

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Dustin Senos immediately. If you can’t or don’t wish to speak in person, or prefer to talk privately or electronically, contact us at

All reports will be handled in the strictest confidence.
