IndyAWS is a community intended for networking and collaboration in the AWS community.
We value the participation of each member of the AWS community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees at the monthly meetups, conferences, and online spaces (such as Slack), whether officially sponsored by IndyAWS or not.
To make clear what is expected, all delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at any IndyAWS event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

The Quick Version
IndyAWS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any venue, including talks.
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for IndyAWS. Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave without a refund at the sole discretion of the organizers.
Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
The Less Quick Version
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity, 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 expected to comply immediately.
Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for IndyAWS.
If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the IndyAWS organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event.
