  • Code of conduct

    In the same way that Matz has written Ruby with a focus on developer happiness, we are focused on community happiness. The Rails Camp USA community is full of wonderful people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and we want to ensure it remains a welcoming and safe environment to all who wish to be a part of it.


    Whenever we come together as a community, our shared spaces are opportunities to showcase the best of what we can be. We are there to support our peers - to build each other up, to accept each other for who they are, and to encourage each other to become the people they want to be. With that in mind, if you are present at any Rails Camp USA event, whether as an attendee, organizer, sponsor or speaker, or if you are active in our Slack group, we take it as given that you agree to follow this code of conduct:


    Rails Camp USA is dedicated to providing harassment-free experiences at events and online spaces for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, or age. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate in any circumstance.


    Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other members of the community. Be respectful towards others. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for events supported by Rails Camp USA.

    Anyone violating these rules at events may be asked to leave the event without a refund at the sole discretion of the organizers.


    If you or someone else is subject to harassment, or you have a concern, please contact the Bobbilee!

    The Rails Camp community is a welcoming and friendly place – thank you for being a part of it.

    Tickets, travel, and cancellations:

    What happens if I, Rails Camp USA have to cancel or the camp cancels on me?

    Rails Camp USA will refund all tickets but not your travel/flights. These camps are in remote areas with forest fires and it's really hard to know today and it's been getting worse every summer. With this in mind plan accordingly and get flights with an airline you can exchange flights for points.


    What happens if you the attendee can't make it?

    I'm sorry to say but no matter what the circumstance is because I need to pay all vendors up front for venue, food, bus, and materials. If you have a diversity ticket you will not be able to transfer this to someone with out speaking to me first.


    If you have any disabilities please let us know ASAP so we can accommodate you as best we can!
