Code of Conduct
HolyJS conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Offensive language or imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers, unless otherwise stipulated by the legislation of the Russian Federation.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact us via email, Telegram channel or personally at the venue by reaching any member of conference staff who can be identified by badges with a name "Organizer" on them.
Photo & video policy
The conference has various photographers and videographers present at the venue for visual documentation of the event. Pictures and videos will be published on the conferences’ websites and social media channels.
Opting-in/opting-out of appearing in published pictures
We provide colored lanyards for attendees of HolyJS to indicate their consent with appearing in pictures published by the conference.
Pink: I do not want to appear in published pictures and use photos with my image.
White (standard): I am fine to appear in published pictures and use photos with my image.
We brief our conference photographers and videographers to be careful about avoiding photographing in the direction of people wearing pink lanyards. However, please note that this is not always feasible due to the crowded and busy environment of our event.
Before we publish our pictures, we’ll remove all pictures containing identifiable pictures of people wearing pink lanyards.
Asking to have your picture removed after the conference
If after the event you find a published picture of yourself that you’d like to have removed, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Respect others’ choice to be in photos or not
Please respect other people’s privacy, boundaries and choice about their willingness to be in pictures. In case of any doubt, please ask before taking photographs of anyone.
In case people with a pink lanyard accidentally end up in your pictures, we ask you to unpublish and remove their picture immediately, as well as in case anyone (wearing a pink lanyard or not) states their disagreement of getting their picture taken and/or published, or if reported and explicitly requested.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
