Code of Conduct

PyMalta is a local community of pythonista who share information, discuss ideas, work together and meet around the Python programming language.

Diversity is one of our huge strengths, but it can also lead to communication issues. To support a welcoming environment for all, regardless of individual differences, we have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to when they participate in this community activities. These rules apply equally to founders, organizers, moderators, sponsors, and affiliates – in short, to all participants.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you must do, or can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended. It’s a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the technical communities in which we participate, and which we represent.

The principles

Where does the code of conduct apply

This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by PyMalta. This includes:

In addition, violations of this code outside these spaces may affect a person’s ability to participate within them.

Sponsors, affiliates, and exhibitors

When you sponsor a PyMalta event, we welcome you as a member of our community, and we expect you to be respectful to the community you operate within.

All exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the code of conduct. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) must not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

In addition, sponsors and affiliates of conference, meetups, and online activities should not employ aggressive recruiting techniques, invasive marketing behavior, or similar actions towards community members. In case of violations, sponsors might be sanctioned and expelled from the event or activity with no return of the sponsorship contribution.

What to do in case of violations

If you believe that someone is violating the code of conduct during one of our events, please contact a member of the event staff immediately. Event staff can be identified by t-shirts/special badges.

If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct in one of our online platforms, we ask that you report it by emailing [email protected]. To help us respond in the best way to the situation, please follow the Code of Conduct Reporting Guide. The code of conduct representatives employ the Code of Conduct Response Playbook to handle reports.

All reports will be kept confidential. In some cases a public statement might be required (for example in a CoC transparency report following conferences), but these reports are anonymized and do not include any personally identifying information.


This code of conduct is largely based on the Write the Docs Code of Conduct, which itself is based off Django Project Code of Conduct, which in turn credits the original text of the Speak Up! project, inspired in its turn by the Fedora Project, as well as the Python Mentorship Project and many others.
