Temporal is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants on all our platforms and events, whether they are held virtually or in person.

Contributors and Temporal Staff

As contributors and Temporal staff, and in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, asking questions on our support platforms, and other activities.

We are committed to making participation in Temporal projects 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.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

The use of sexualized language or imagery

Personal attacks

Trolling or insulting/derogatory comments

Public or private harassment

Publishing others' private information, such as physical or electronic addresses, without explicit permission

Other unethical or unprofessional conduct.

Temporal staff 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. By adopting this Code of Conduct, Temporal staff commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of managing this project.

This code of conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior in Temporal may be reported by contacting us via conduct@temporal.io

Temporal Events

Temporal is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at all of our events, whether they are held in person or virtually. Temporal events exist to encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression and require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. While at Temporal events or related ancillary or social events, any participants, including members, speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form.

This Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by Temporal and the terms are non-negotiable. Your registration for or attendance at any Temporal event, whether it’s held in person or virtually, indicates your agreement to abide by this policy and its terms.

Expected Behavior

All event participants, whether they are attending an in-person event or a virtual event, are expected to behave in accordance with professional standards, with both this Code of Conduct as well as their respective employer’s policies governing appropriate workplace behavior and applicable laws.

Unaccepted Behavior

Harassment will not be tolerated in any form, whether in person or virtually, including, but not limited to, harassment based on gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or any other status protected by laws in which the conference or program is being held. Harassment includes the use of abusive, offensive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, sexual imagery and unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors. Any report of harassment at one of our events, whether in person or virtual, will be addressed immediately. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Anyone who witnesses or is subjected to unacceptable behavior should notify Temporal at once.

Individuals who participate (or plan to participate) in Temporal events, whether its an in-person event or a virtual event, should conduct themselves at all times in a manner that comports with both the letter and spirit of this policy prohibiting harassment and abusive behavior, whether before, during or after the event.  This includes statements made in social media postings, on-line publications, text messages, and all other forms of electronic communication.

Consequences of Unaccepted Behavior

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, whether in person or virtually, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate depending on the circumstances, ranging from issuance of a warning to the offending individual to expulsion from the conference with no refund. Temporal reserves the right to exclude any participant found to be engaging in harassing behavior from participating in any further Temporal events, trainings or other activities.

If a participant (or individual wishing to participate in a Temporal event, in-person and/or virtual), through postings on social media or other online publications or another form of electronic communication, engages in conduct that violates this policy, whether before, during or after a Temporal event, Temporal may take appropriate corrective action, which could include imposing a temporary or permanent ban on an individual’s participation in future Temporal events.

What To Do If You Witness or Are Subject to Unaccepted Behavior
