Unveiling a SydJS Code of Conduct

Unveiling a SydJS Code of Conduct

We've been truly fortunate in that our SydJS community has been largely
self-policing for its three-year run. An incident at last month's meeting
gave us pause for thought, though.

Lachlan Hardy has responded with a post to that incident where we felt the
need to apologise to our attendees and to set the bar for behaviour at our
meetings. You can read his post here:

Following on from that we have also taken steps to launch a Code of
Conduct. It's a work-in-progress and open for your input! It's your
community, so have your say:
https://github.com/sydjs/sydjs/wiki/Code-of-Conduct

We choose to share JavaScript's good parts; and we choose to share our own.

I wasn't there on the night, sorry to hear this.

That said, well done on the response. Top notch! The Code of Conduct is
well written looks and good to me.

A couple of similar incidents in other communities recently have not been
dealt with in such a quick and skilled manner... subsequently exploding and
sadly doing significant damage to the communities in question... which mind
you, take years to build.

I think it's far too easy forget that building and running a community like
SydJS is tough and takes *a huge amount of effort* ... thanks to Sharkie
and everyone else involved for that.

Sydney is a better place to be due SydJS! - Thank you. :)

Thanks for responding to this.

I was there when it happened and thought it was in very poor taste.

Cheers,
Jonathan Conway

No worries,

Reading through it struck a chord with me... as I had the misfortune of
some stuff like this to deal with myself recently...
It really sucks when some random social vandal comes along and does
something destructive and/or bigoted.

All you can do is respond and learn... looks like the SydJS team have done
both. Props.
