Code of Conduct

The Portland PostgreSQL Users Group (PDXPUG) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone.


We do not tolerate harassment of anyone in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any venue, including exhibition booths, talks and social events around PDXPUG. Members violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the United States PostgreSQL Association (PgUS) without a refund at the discretion of the PgUS board of directors or members.


Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, displaying sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.


If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the PgUS board of directors or members may take any action they deem appropriate, including ejection from the corporation with no refund. If you feel that you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a PgUS board member immediately.


Thank you for your help in making PostgreSQL fun and enjoyable for everyone!
