The Barcelona Perl Mongers, as part of the Perl Community, believe our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor.

We therefore ask all our members, speakers, volunteers, attendees and guests to adopt these principles. We are a diverse community. Sometimes this means we need to work harder to ensure we're creating an environment of trust and respect where all who come to participate feel comfortable and included.

We value your participation and appreciate your help in realising this goal.

Respect yourself, and respect others. Be courteous to those around you. If someone indicates theys don't wish to be photographed, respect that wish.s If someone indicates they would like to be left alone,s let them be.

Be inclusive

Be aware

We ask everyone to be aware that we will not tolerate intimidation, harassment, or any abusive, discriminatory or derogatory behaviour by anyone at any event or online.

Complaints can be made to the organisers by contacting them in person or sending an e-mail to All complaints made to event organisers will remain confidential and be taken seriously.
