PgDay SF Policies

Our team at PgDay San Francisco is dedicated to making the event fun and inclusive for everyone. If you have any questions about our policies, please get in touch through our primary email address

Financial Disclosure

Conferences such as PgDay San Francisco are quite expensive to produce, and the money comes from our generous sponsors as well as from ticket sales. As a community conference for an open-source project, we strive to keep prices as low as possible for everyone. We also aim to have a balanced budget with no deficit, which means that we usually make some amount of profit.

All proceeds from PgDay San Francisco go to United States PostgreSQL Association, a non-profit organization that uses the funds "…to help promote PostgreSQL in and around North America". See their website for more details.

Code of Conduct

PgDay San Francisco is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone.

We do not tolerate harassment of PgDay San Francisco participants in any form. Sexual or violent language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including exhibition booths, talks, and social events around PgDay San Francisco. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the PgDay San Francisco conference organizers.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, displaying sexual or violent images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the PgDay San Francisco conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including ejection from the conference with no refund. If you feel that you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a staff member immediately. PgDay San Francisco volunteers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or the police, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

If a complaint is about an organizer or staff member of the event, you may contact a PostgreSQL US member directly. You may also contact the PostgreSQL Community Code of Conduct Committee if you prefer an outside organization, in which case the conference organizers and PostgreSQL US will commit to assisting the CoC committee to the best of their abilities.

Thank you for your help in making PgDay San Francisco fun and enjoyable for everyone!
