CppCon has always valued diversity and tried to make everyone feel welcome. To that end, we’ve decided to strengthen the wording of our Code of Conduct, to make sure that everyone knows that they will be actively supported and welcome. To leverage the best practices and experience of others, we’ve adopted the current PyCon code of conduct as-is, modulo editorial diffs to rename it for CppCon. Thanks very much to the PyCon organizers for open-sourcing and sharing their work!
Happily, as far as we know there haven’t been any incidents at CppCon so far, and we’d like to do what we can to keep it that way and make everyone feel as welcome as possible. That especially includes kids – this year we are looking forward very much to the talk by Sara J. Chipps on her success inspiring about 4,000 kids aged 8-12 to learn to write C++, and to the related Jewelbots Build Workshop “for kids and grownups” at CppCon 2017! We want there to continue to be inclusive sessions and events like this at CppCon in the future, and we welcome your suggestions for ones we could include in our planning; if you have suggestions, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
