Code of Conduct

As part of the world community of WordPress we adopt the following code of conduct:


WordPress Alicante is a community open to all the world. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, preferred operating system, programming language or text editor.

This code of conduct summarizes our expectations for the behaviour of the participants, as well as the consequences of unacceptable behavior.

We urge all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, lecturers, attendees and other participants to collaborate to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all at our events.

Open Source Citizenship

An additional objective of this code of conduct is to increase open-source citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between what we do and the community at large.

For this we will offer a recognition to the exemplary citizens of our community.

If you think that someone who is making an extra effort to ensure that our community is welcoming, friendly and encourages all participants to contribute to the maximum, propose their recognition.


  • The WordPress meetups are for the benefit of the WordPress community as a whole, not business or specific individuals. All actions carried out as organizer of events are made with the greater interest of the community in mind.
  • Participation as a member of the local Meetup group is open to anyone who wants to join, regardless of their ability, abilities, financial status or any other criterion.
  • The meetups are made with volunteer speakers. When a small contribution is necessary to attend this cost it will only be to cover the costs of the meetup and should not be used to pay to the rapporteurs or organizers.
  • Meetup groups allow events to be organized by any trusted member of the community.
