The Chicago Coder Conference is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the technology community. We value the participation of all members of the community and want all attendees to have a positive and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all participants are expected to show respect and courtesy to all other participants throughout the conference and at all conference events.

We require all conference participants (staff, sponsors, volunteers, speakers, exhibitors, attendees, and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct at all conference venues and all conference-related social events to help us ensure a safe, positive and harassment-free experience for everyone.
