Data Science Community Code of Conduct

Jun 17, 2020 3 minutes read

The data science community exists to facilitate the exchange of information, resources and stimuli among the data science community.

We believe that our mission is best accomplished in a friendly, safe and welcoming environment; free from intimidation or harassment.

To this end, certain behaviors and practices will not be tolerated.


  • Be respectful
  • We are here to help:
    • Daniel Morales @danielmorales1202
  • Abusive behavior will never be tolerated
  • The data published in this group is hosted at the discretion of the administrators, and can be deleted
  • Violations of this code may result in prompt and permanent removal from the community


We expect all community members, including administrators, users, facilitators and vendors, to abide by this Code of Conduct at all times in and in individual communications regarding community affairs.

Definitions of various subjective terms such as "discriminatory", "hateful" or "confusing" will be decided at the sole discretion of the Data Science group administrators

Friendly, harassment-free space

We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, physical appearance, body size, race or similar personal characteristics.

We ask that you please respect that people have differences of opinion regarding technical options, and that you recognize that every design or implementation choice involves compromise and numerous costs. There is rarely a single correct answer. A difference in technological preferences is never a license to be rude.

All shared opinions, concerns, feelings, rants and views, whether about people, events, companies or the technology industry, shared in this Slack should not be shared without the explicit (and enthusiastic) consent of the person who shared it. This includes sharing information without attributing it to the specific person who said it (for example: "I heard that on a Slack team I am part of that) In short, if the information is in the public domain (i.e., it can be cited by a readily available online source), it is okay to share it, but if you are quoting an individual's opinion, you must receive permission from that individual first.

Any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting, or other attention-grabbing behavior is not welcome, and will not be tolerated.

Harassment of other users of the group, whether through the public or private media, will never be tolerated.

Avoid the use of first names, nicknames, or other offensive or harassing identifiers that may impair a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, the following harmful or disruptive verbal or written comments related to gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, physical appearance, body size, race, or similar personal characteristics; inappropriate use of nudity, sexual images, and/or sexually explicit language in public spaces; threats of physical or non-physical harm; deliberate intimidation, stalking, or stalking; harassment of photography or recording; sustained disruption of conversations or other events; and unwanted sexual attention.
