Online communities include people from many different backgrounds. Hashnode contributors and users are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or similar personal characteristics.
The Code of Conduct's first goal is to specify a baseline standard of behavior so that people with different social values and communication styles can talk about and on Hashnode effectively, productively, and respectfully.
The second goal is to provide a mechanism for resolving conflicts in the community when they arise.
The third goal of the Code of Conduct is to make our community welcoming to people from different backgrounds. Diversity is critical to the project; for Hashnode to be successful, it needs contributors and users from all backgrounds.
We believe that healthy debate and disagreement are essential to a healthy environment and community. However, it is never okay to be disrespectful. We value diverse opinions, but we value respectful behavior more.
