The second resolution passed by the board serves as the [Python Software] Foundation’s requirement that all Python conferences and related events create and apply a Code of Conduct. Without a code in place, the Foundation will not fund the event."
...
PyCon’s Code of Conduct is structured after one created by The Ada Initiative and others, available under the Creative Commons Zero license at http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Conference_anti-harassment/Policy.

Yay!

BTW, looks like I'll be learning some Python for my job (maintaining someone else's scripts, not writing from scratch).

I feel sad that the policy obviously addresses an abuse of sexuality. I presume that the abusers have been men - is this so? I feel sorry that they are so shameless and clueless about their misogyny and crudeness.

It's sad that now sex is a bad thing at Python conferences. I think it's terrible that such rules have to be so restrictive that it will quell behavior that could be friendly, and normal people will feel insecure. It's a case of the fuckwits ruining it for everyone.

I'm glad, however, that the abuse is being addressed in a code of conduct that is explicit.
