Deconstructing the Code of Conduct

Codes of Conduct are necessary documents in open source communities, but implementing them can be a tough process for many open source communities. In this talk, I'll list out the numerous benefits for codes of conduct in open source and present counterarguments to the numerous fallacies that are used to prevent them from being implemented in open source communities. Attendees will leave this talk with an understand of open source culture, the importance of open source communities, and how CoC-like documents can be helpful in online communities, offline communities, and work environments.
