Code of conduct

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers, and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. 

We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody. 

Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, previous hackathon attendance or computing experience. 

Harassment of hackathon participants, and the use of alcohol and illegal substances will not be tolerated. 

Offensive language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media, and other online media. 

Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the hackathon at the discretion of organisers.

The intellectual property (IP) rights of hacks produced at the event belong to their respective teams and not to the organisers, sponsors, or partners. 

Participants are encouraged to use their own proprietary solutions to develop creative and efficient products provided you have appropriate legal permission. 

If you are representing a company, your company’s proprietary software assets are also allowed to be used with the appropriate permission from your organization.
