Although Covid-19 is here, we plan to beat it with DevFest Hellas 2020!
Is true! We will not cancel it and we will not postpone it! We will do it as a virtual event!
Are you ready?
We, GDG Athens - GDG Cyprus - GDG Cloud Thessaloniki & DSC University of Athens - DSC University of Macedonia, decided to join forces and make this festival on the 3rd of October 2020.
It is our first try so we'll do the DevFest Hellas as a one day show.
We enjoy saying that DevFest is organized by the community, for the community. We want to allow everyone to be part of the DevFest Hellas 2020 organization, either as a speaker, as a volunteer or as an organizer.
You can reserve your place taking your free ticket. Make sure you're not missing your seat 😁
See you all at #DevFestHellas2020

DevFest Hellas 2020 Event Community Guidelines and Anti-Harassment Policy
DevFest Hellas 2020 is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. DevFest Hellas 2020 takes violations of our policy seriously and will respond appropriately.
All participants of the DevFest Hellas 2020 event must abide by the following policy:
Be excellent to each other. We want the event to be an excellent experience for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category. Treat everyone with respect. Participate while acknowledging that everyone deserves to be here -- and each of us has the right to enjoy our experience without fear of harassment, discrimination, or condescension, whether blatant or via micro-aggressions. Jokes shouldn’t demean others. Consider what you are saying and how it would feel if it were said to or about you.
Speak up if you see or hear something. Harassment is not tolerated, and you are empowered to politely engage when you or others are disrespected. The person making you feel uncomfortable may not be aware of what they are doing, and politely bringing their behaviour to their attention is encouraged. If a participant engages in harassing or uncomfortable behaviour, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning or expelling the offender from the event with no refund. If you are being harassed or feel uncomfortable, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately.
Harassment is not tolerated. Harassment includes, but is not limited to: a verbal language that reinforces social structures of domination related to gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category; sexual imagery in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; offensive verbal language; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
Practice saying "Yes and" to each other. It’s a theatre improv technique to build on each other’s ideas. We all benefit when we create together.
This policy extends to talks, forums, workshops, codelabs, social media, parties, hallway conversations, all attendees, partners, sponsors, volunteers, event staff, etc. You catch our drift. DevFest Hellas 2020 reserves the right to refuse admittance to or remove any person from, any of our hosted events (including future events) at any time in its sole discretion. This includes, but is not limited to, attendees behaving in a disorderly manner or failing to comply with this policy, and the terms and conditions herein. If a participant engages in harassing or uncomfortable behaviour, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning or expelling the offender from the event with no refund.
Our event staff are:
Networking on Slack:
1. Magy Kontou
2. Maria Stylianou
3. Andreas Lefkatis
4. Andreas Loizou
1. George Zouros Ellenidis
2. Ilias Eleta
Our zero-tolerance policy means that we will look into and review every allegation of violation of our Event Community Guidelines and Anti-Harassment Policy and respond appropriately. Please note, while we take all concerns raised seriously, we will use our discretion as to determining when and how to follow up on reported incidents, and may decline to take any further action and/or may direct the participant to other resources for resolution.
Event staff will be happy to help participants experiencing discomfort or harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
Why this policy is important
Harassment at events and in online communities is unfortunately common. Creating an official policy aims to improve this by making it clear that harassment of anyone for any reason is not acceptable within our events and communities. This policy may prevent harassment by clearly defining expectations for behaviour, aims to provide reassurance, and encourages people who have had bad experiences at other events to participate in this one.
