Anyone involved with WordCamp must read and agree to abide by the following credo:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- I agree that WordCamps are not-for-profit events, organized with budget and funding transparency.
- I agree that WordCamps should be accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of financial status.
