In this talk, I’d like to present about our experiences with the process of introducing and enforcing a Code of Conduct to an open source community.

Open source communities are diverse with people from various backgrounds. It is important to foster the spirit of inclusiveness in it. A Code of Conduct reinforces this beleif to old and new contributors alike. People also know whom to contact in case of crises. The talk will cover:

  • Why Code of Conduct
  • How to choose (or write) the text
  • Moderators
  • Community response
  • Evolving the Code of Conduct
