Agile Uprising Community Code of Conduct

This code of conduct governs Agile Uprising’s community events and discussions.


  • Diversity and inclusion make our community strong. We encourage participation from the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible and want to be very clear about where we stand.
  • Our goal is to maintain a safe, helpful, and friendly community for everyone, regardless of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, political viewpoints, or other defining characteristic(s).
  • This code and related procedures apply to unacceptable behavior occurring in all community venues — online and in-person— as well as in all one-on-one communications, and anywhere such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members including behavior outside the scope of community activities.

Expected Behavior

  • Be kind.
  • Look out for each other.

    • Do not show disrespect towards others.
  • Intimidation or harassment – online or in-person.
