Code of Conduct for Cohorts

We believe that technical education should be freely accessible. This means that learners should not have to pay to access our programs. It also means that we are committed to reducing barriers our learners have in accessing and participating in our program so we can learn together, safely.

We expect that learners, sponsors, instructors and other participants in our program will also want to help each other learn. We set the following rules to help clarify what behaviours are unacceptable during the Cohort.

Participants in our program, including forums, streams and any other program activities who engage in the following behaviours may be subject to repercussions that could include removal from the program.

  • Harassment includes sexual language and imagery, deliberate intimidation, stalking, name-calling, unwelcome attention, libel, and any malicious hacking or social engineering. This Cohort should be a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, language of origin, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, national origin, or religion (or lack thereof).
  • Trolling includes posting inflammatory comments to provoke an emotional response or disrupt discussions.
  • Spamming includes posting off-topic messages to disrupt discussions, promote a product, solicit donations, advertise a job / internship / gig, or flooding discussions with files or text.
  • We want to learn and grow in a friendly and supportive environment with you. To do this, we ask that you help us create an environment that reduces barriers for access. Be kind <3.

To report inappropriate or unwelcome behaviour on the program, please contact us.

PS. If these rules look familiar, we drew heavily on freeCodeCamp’s code of conduct and thank them for their work on it.
