Cloud Native Live: Designing and Operating Reliable Cloud Services
Watch Now Community Code of Conduct

In the community, people connect from all over the globe with the mission to work towards achieving better software application and infrastructure reliability throughout design, development, and operations. Each of us plays an active role in the success of this community. Whether you’re from an organization or representing yourself, we welcome your feedback, insight, and contributions.

Our Code of Conduct aims to ensure that we all can learn from each other in a transparent, open, and most importantly, supportive environment. It also outlines how leaders intend to run a community in which anyone and everyone is welcome and respected.

The Community Code of Conduct is available to all member organizations, partners, researchers, and individuals. Joining the community means you’ve accepted the Code of Conduct and are willing to adhere to it.

Political discourse is important. This is not the place for it. Keep intense political discussions outside of our community.
