AWS Code of Conduct

Last Updated: October 21, 2020

Importance

We firmly believe in the value and importance of an environment where all AWS community members feel welcome and safe. This Code of Conduct explains the behavior we expect from AWS community members interacting at AWS events and across AWS blogs, online forums, and social media platforms. The purpose of AWS events, blogs, online forums, and social media platforms is to foster technical and professional education and encourage community discussion.

Behavior

1. You will behave in a way that facilitates a safe and supportive environment for all AWS event participants and across AWS blogs, online forums, and social media platforms.

2. You will not engage in disruptive speech or behavior or otherwise interfere with other individuals’ participation in AWS events and across AWS blogs, online forums, and social media platforms.

3. You will not interfere with the operation of AWS events, blogs, online forums, and social media platforms.

4. You will not attempt to receive benefits that you are not entitled to at AWS events and across AWS blogs, online forums, and social media platforms.

5. You will not engage in any form of harassing, offensive, discriminatory, or threatening speech or behavior, including but not limited to relating to race, gender, gender identity and expression, national origin, religion, disability, marital status, age, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, or other protected category.

6. You will comply with the instructions of AWS event staff and AWS blog, online forum, and social media platform moderators.

7. You will comply with all applicable laws and, in the context of AWS events, all of our event-specific requirements.

Scope

We expect all AWS community members (including but not limited to attendees, vendors, sponsors, speakers, volunteers, moderators, and AWS employees) to uphold the principles of this Code of Conduct. In the context of AWS events, this Code of Conduct covers the main event and all related events (social or otherwise). AWS employees must continue to abide by all company policies at all times.

Consequences

If we believe you breached this Code of Conduct, we may prohibit you from attending future AWS events and interacting across AWS blogs, online forums, and social media platforms. Additionally, if we believe that you breached this Code of Conduct in the context of an AWS event, we may require you to leave the AWS event. If we require you to leave an AWS event, you will not be eligible to receive a refund of any fees paid to us related to the event. All determinations are at our sole discretion. We will involve law enforcement if we deem appropriate.
