Code of conduct
All are welcome, but we have a simple set of rules.
At RustLang.la, members share some form of their precious time together, whether it be virtually, while attending a meetup, or while communicating directly with members over our Slack, Twitter, or GitHub.
Such close collaboration requires that members of RustLang.la commit to supporting and respecting each other. To participate in RustLang.la, you must agree to:
- Be kind to others. Most of the time, this should be easy. (If this is something you have trouble with on a regular basis, you shouldn't join RustLang.la.) Occasionally, this will be difficult, especially with people you don't like, or with people who have not been kind to you. Nevertheless, under all circumstances, you agree to be kind to others.
- Assume others' good intentions. When someone does something that feels unkind to you, assume that person has good intentions. Perhaps they did not mean to be unkind. Perhaps they are in a bad mood. Perhaps you did something that hurt them without realizing it.
- Respect people's differences. Members of RustLang.la are of diverse races, genders, sexual orientations, economic statuses, and many other differences. Don't assume anything about someone's ability or personality because of such differences, and don't say anything hurtful about who they are. If you aren't sure if something might be hurtful, don't say it.
- Don't make others feel uncomfortable. Different people have different feelings and expectations about sex and romance. Sexual harassment can take many forms and it can be difficult to anticipate what conduct may be offensive or unwelcome to others. Be respectful to your community: if you aren't sure if something will make someone uncomfortable, don’t do it.
- Harassment is not acceptable. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, 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.
Hopefully, this Code of Conduct is how you strive to behave anyways. If it is not, you should probably not join RustLang.la. The RustLang.la team will have the final say in the interpretation of this Code, and if they decide you have violated it, they will ask you to leave the community.
RustLang.la is an opportunity not just to learn and thrive with Rust in Los Angeles, but to practice working closely with others. On the rare occasions that you find such close collaboration difficult, we hope this Code of Conduct will be your guide.
