In the absence of an official conference code of conduct, I’d like to state, that as a speaker at OSCON I believe we should all strive to create a fun, educational, enjoyable and harassment-free conference experience for everyone.

If you are being harassed, or witness harassment please report it to venue security, the police, the conference organisers or a trusted friend. You do not have to put up with it.

For more detail on what an anti-harassment policy should contain, please review the geekfeminism wiki conference anti-harassment policy template
