Code of Conduct
UWB Hacks the Cloud is going to be amazing! Let’s lay some ground rules to make sure everyone has the best experience possible.
The gist of the Code of Conduct is:
- be respectful to each other
- don’t plagiarize other people’s work
- breaking these rules will have consequences
Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of the following:
- gender identity and expression
- sexual orientation
- physical appearance
- body size
- political views
- previous hackathon attendance or lack of
- computing experience or lack of
- chosen programming language or tech stack
We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants, judges, mentors, volunteers, or organizers in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue; this includes the following:
- talks, presentations, or demos
- any parties associated to the hackathon
- social media
- any other online media
Intentional direct plagiarism of code or visual content from other participants and readily available resources on the internet will not be tolerated.
If your project uses visuals or program elements that your team didn’t create from scratch, you are expected to attribute credit to the original author(s).
Please apply common sense in situations not defined in this code of conduct. Take this opportunity to showcase your own individual creativity.
Hackathon participants violating these rules may be sanctioned at the discretion of the hackathon organisers. Any of the following consequences may result:
- being asked to leave the event
- being banned from future events hosted by the organizers
- having awards revoked
- campus security being notified in the event of direct harassment
If you have any questions about these rules, please contact the hackathon organizers.
If you feel uncomfortable or think there may be a potential violation of the code of conduct, please report it immediately using the Code of Conduct Violation Report form. All reporters have the right to remain anonymous.
