This Code of Conduct governs our public code and documentation repositories, community Slack workspace, and our in-person and virtual event presence.
As contributors and maintainers, and in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through attendance, posting messages, reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other activities.
We are committed to making participation in this project and at our events a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or nationality.
We foster an environment for mutual learning, exchange of ideas, and continuous improvement. Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for our community include:
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct.
Event organizers and team members reserve the right to reject a talk proposal or to interrupt a talk if it violates this Code of Conduct. Participants who violate these rules will be asked to stop and are expected to comply immediately. Participants may be asked to leave or removed without a refund (if applicable), at the discretion of event organizers.
By adopting this Code of Conduct, project maintainers and event organizers commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of managing this project and running events. Project maintainers and organizers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct may be permanently removed from the respective team.
This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.
Enforcement & Reporting
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior in this project may be reported by contacting the Timescale Conduct Team ([email protected]). All reports will be treated with discretion, respect the privacy and security of the reporter of any incident, and reviewed/investigated promptly and fairly.
In your report, please include your name, description of the incident (including the date), and if it was a single instance or observed multiple times.
Project maintainers and organizers will follow these Community Impact Guidelines in determining the consequences for any action they deem in violation of this Code of Conduct:
Community Impact: Use of inappropriate language or other behavior deemed unprofessional or unwelcome in the community.
Consequence: In the case of GitHub, Slack, and online events with chat functionality, project maintainers, workspace administrators, and/or event organizers will reply to the issue, post, or other thread, providing clarity around the nature of the violation and an explanation of why the behavior was inappropriate. Depending on the situation, this may also include a private, written warning.
Community Impact: A violation through a single incident or series of actions.
Consequence: A warning with consequences for continued behavior. No interaction with the people involved, including unsolicited interaction with those enforcing the Code of Conduct, for a specified period of time. This includes avoiding interactions in community spaces as well as external channels like social media. Violating these terms may lead to a temporary or permanent ban.
3. Temporary Ban
Community Impact: A serious violation of community standards, including sustained inappropriate behavior.
Consequence: A temporary ban from any sort of interaction or public communication with the community for a specified period of time. No public or private interaction with the people involved, including unsolicited interaction with those enforcing the Code of Conduct, is allowed during this period. Violating these terms may lead to a permanent ban.
4. Permanent Ban
Community Impact: Demonstrating a pattern of violation of community standards, including sustained inappropriate behavior, harassment of an individual, or aggression toward or disparagement of classes of individuals.
Consequence: A permanent ban from any sort of public interaction within the community.

One of Timescale’s company values is “be inclusive.” We strive to collaborate effectively with people of diverse professions, backgrounds, and cultures. We seek and embrace new perspectives. We intervene if someone is being marginalized.
We favor events supporting marginalized groups and creating safe, welcoming, and inclusive spaces for everyone. We prioritize and commit to speaking, sponsoring, and/or attending events whose expectations and boundaries align with those described in these guidelines.
We are grateful to all event organizers who join the mission to make tech events more accessible, inclusive, and welcoming.
If your event does not meet all criteria, please reach out at [email protected]. We are happy to review your ideas for improving the event diversity and collaborate with you on making the best experience possible for everyone. You are welcome to reuse this speaker rider under the CC0 1.0 Universal license.
There is an actively enforced Code of Conduct (CoC) available on the event website. Tip: If this is new to you, the following resources provide excellent starting points.
Your event speaker line-up should be as diverse as possible. Diversity includes a wide range, where some types are visible at first sight (e.g., gender, race, age), while other types (e.g., sexual orientation, educational background, marital status) are invisible. We recognize that information about diversity is not made public in some cases to ensure people's safety. If this is the case, please reach out to us privately at [email protected].
You actively prioritize marginalized voices to be heard and not be limited to moderating roles. In an ideal scenario, your panels have at least one panelist who identifies as a woman, non-binary, or genderfluid, and at least one panelist who is a person of color. Speakers from marginalized backgrounds should not talk only about being underrepresented. Instead, they should speak about their expertise.
The description of the CFP review and selection process is publicly available. Potential speakers get the information about the submission criteria, submission process, evaluation committee members, and how and when organizers will announce the selection process results.
Proposals are anonymized during the review process. (i.e., Reviewers do not know who submitted each proposal.) After the anonymized review process, the proposals are de-anonymized. Finally, the selection committee reviews the program and speaker line-up to ensure it is as diverse as possible.
The event evaluation committee is diverse (i.e., education, cultural background, professional affiliations, gender, age, or any other vector).
The event is a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space accessible to all who want to participate. You provide various options that will accommodate people's needs and ensure the best possible experience for everyone. These options can include but are not limited to:
Timescale reserves the right to withdraw from the event at any point if we observe that what we agreed upon was not fulfilled. If we withdraw from the event, everything associated with the Timescale brand should be removed from the event properties.
