Hack the North is a community hackathon intended for collaboration and learning in the student community. We value the participation of each member of the student community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the hackathon. To make clear what is expected, all attendees and speakers at this hackathon are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers and University of Waterloo officials will enforce this code throughout the event.
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal comments, hacks, or other online activity related to gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, physical appearance, race, religion, sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If participants fail to comply they will be asked to leave the event.
Be careful and mindful of the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary comments and hacks can be offensive to those around you.
If a participant engages in behaviour that violates this code of conduct, the hackathon organizers will take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the hackathon.
Hack the North is a MLH member event. As part of our partnership, the MLH code of conduct also applies to all Hack the North attendees. You can read more about MLH Code of Conduct here:
