What if a Conference Doesn't Have a Code of Conduct?
Many conferences still don't have have codes of conduct in place. For many audiences, that lack is increasingly problematic —especially because organizations like the Ada Initiative have made adopting a policy as simple as possible.
As a result, some conference attendees and even some speakers have chosen to not attend any conference that does not already have a code of conduct in place. That sort of decision can be far reaching, especially when attending technology conferences is an important part of your career. Every person has to make such a decision for themselves.
