Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct outlines the standards of behavior expected of members of the Codacy community.

We value the participation of each user of the community and want all members to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Regardless of whether you are an old or a new member, we encourage you to join and participate, because we believe that this is a place where you can talk with like-minded people, discuss, share ideas and clever tricks, report bugs, troubleshoot, and shape Codacy’s product development by making new feature requests and voting on new features, among other activities and initiatives.

It’s our aim that everyone feels welcome and can participate, regardless of their level of expertise or identity.

We expect these guidelines to be followed by all community members including Codacy’s employees, customers, partners, user group organizers and attendees, and other event participants.
