Code of Conduct
Please read, and abide, by our code of conduct, which can be found here. Our code of conduct is strictly enforced. We ask that speakers especially review this code of conduct and are careful to be inclusive in the words and images used during their presentation.
The session room will include a screen, projector, and (2) wireless microphones. During individual sessions a second mic will be used for questions, so be sure to leave time at the end of your talk. All speakers will need to supply their own computer and necessary adaptors to use during their sessions.
NOTE: The projectors have both VGA and HDMI capabilities/outputs and can accommodate either. If you require any additional AV, please email Shannon with those needs by Friday, March 30.
Inclusive Speaker Orientation Online Course
The Linux Foundation, in collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), has created an online course designed to teach the viewer about inclusion, diversity and unconscious bias. We highly recommend all of our speakers watch the course to learn tips/tools to use when speaking to encourage inclusivity in presentations and messaging. Please click here for the course.
If you require a visa letter, please register for the event, wait 24 hours for your registration to process within our systems, and then complete the visa letter request here.
