We do not tolerate harassment in any form and we expect all of our conference's participants to abide by our common ethos defined below.

Simple Expectations:

  • Be respectful of both people and ideas
  • Do not be crass, rude, ignorant or demeaning
  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
  • You are not here to red team our hosts. If you find a security flaw in the WiFi or other part of the network of our conference area follow responsible disclosure procedures.
