The purpose of this document is to start a discussion that leads to better expectations between speakers and organizers of WordCamps. It is based on Open Conference Expectations by @rmurphey @divya and @paul_irish. It is based on my experience speaking at many WordCamps and seeing some great things and not great things. I would love your comments and feedback.
What I ask for as a speaker
- A complimentary ticket to the event.
- A code of conduct for every attendee, including speakers and sponsors. Everyone should be able to have a good time in a safe, harassment-free environment. See the The Ada Initiative for more information on how to create such a policy.
- Adequate amount of time to prepare. This means the call for speakers should occur at least sixty days before the camp and invitations at least thirty days before the
