WordCamp Involvement Credo

Anyone involved with WordCamp must read and agree to abide by the following credo:

  1. I agree that WordCamps are meant to benefit the local WordPress community through live events and the broader WordPress community through the sharing of online video and other materials.
  2. I agree that a WordCamp is a casual, locally and volunteer-organized event, focused on WordPress and reflecting the local WordPress community it represents. By officially associating myself with WordCamp as a (speaker / sponsor / volunteer / organizer), I understand that in this role I represent the WordPress project and its values.
  3. I understand that the values of the WordPress project include:
    • no discrimination on the basis of economic or social status, race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, creed, religion, political belief, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, or disability
    • no incitement to violence or promotion of hate
    • no spammers
    • no jerks
    • respect the WordPress trademark
    • embrace the WordPress license; If distributing WordPress-derivative works (themes, plugins, WP distros), any person or business officially associated with WordCamp should give their users the same freedoms that WordPress itself provides 100% GPL or compatible, the same guidelines we follow on WordPress.org.
    • don’t promote companies or people that distribute WordPress derivative works which aren’t 100% GPL compatible
  4. I agree that WordCamps are not-for-profit events, organized with budget and funding transparency.
  5. I agree that WordCamps should be accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of financial status.
