NE-RPC (the North East Remote Programming Conference) is a community-organised, free-to-attend virtual conference, showcasing speakers from the North East of England and beyond.

As technologists we're always learning. Trends and technologies change all the time. We thought it would be a great opportunity to take the opportunity to focus on development, improvement and re-learning.

Code of Conduct

NE-RPC will be a friendly, welcoming, inclusive and educational environment for all participants. Whilst intended to showcase local speakers, the event is open to be attended by all. As such, we're committed to ensuring high standards and will take a zero-tolerance approach to prevent harrassment: whether that be targeted based upon age, race, sexuality, appearance, gender (and gender identity) or religious beliefs.

Furthermore, as an inclusive event we will remain technology-agnostic. Whether you're tabs or spaces, Vim or Emacs, Java or C#, we're all here to learn, not to beat up on other's choices. We ask that speakers respect this boundary when presenting content. Participants who do not follow our Code of Conduct will be removed from the online event and not permitted to rejoin.

Any concerns, please reach out to us at any time.
