CODE OF CONDUCT



  • Applicability and Scope

    This code of conduct applies to all of this community's spaces, including public channels, private channels and direct messages, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the administrators.

    Toward a Welcoming and Safe Environment

    We hope to create an environment in which diverse individuals can collaborate and interact in a positive and affirming way. Examples of behaviour that contributes to creating this sort of environment include:

    • Using welcoming and inclusive language
    • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
    • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
    • Focusing on what is best for the overall community
    • Showing empathy towards other community members

    Anti-Harassment Statement

    MakerGram will not tolerate harassment of any kind. Examples of harassment include:

    • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, pregnancy status, veteran status, political affiliation, marital status, body size, age, race, national origin, ethnic origin, nationality, immigration status, language, caste, religion or lack thereof, or other identity marker. This includes anti-Indigenous/Nativeness and anti-Blackness.

    • Unwelcome comments regarding a person's lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, relationships, drugs, and employment.

    • Deliberate misgendering, using inappropriate pronouns, or use of "dead" or rejected names.

    • Gratuitous or off-topic sexual images or behaviour in spaces where they're not appropriate.

    • Physical contact and simulated physical contact (eg, textual descriptions like "hug" or "backrub") without consent or after a request to stop.

    • Threats of violence.

    • Incitement of violence towards any individual or group, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm.

    • Deliberate intimidation.

    • Stalking or following - online or in the physical world.

    • Harassing photography or recording, including logging online activity for harassment purposes.

    • Sustained disruption of discussion.

    • Unwelcome sexual attention.

    • Patterns of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inappropriate levels of intimacy with others.

    • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease.

    • Deliberate "outing" of any aspect of a person's identity without their consent except as necessary to protect vulnerable people from intentional abuse.

    • Publication of non-harassing private communication.

    • Jokes that resemble the above, such as "hipster racism", still count as harassment even if meant satirically or ironically.

    If you have questions or concerns about these issues please feel free to message an admin or ask for an opportunity to explore the issue with a moderator and volunteers.

    Reporting

    If you are being harassed by a member of our community, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the administrators via mail at contact@makergram.com. If the person who is harassing you is on the admin team, they will not be involved in handling or resolving the incident.

    The admin team will respond to any complaint as promptly as possible we can. If you do not get a timely response (for example, if no admins are currently online) then please put your personal safety and well-being first, and consider logging out and/or contacting the admins by email at contact@makergram.com.

    This code of conduct applies to our community's spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of our community outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by our members, especially the administrators, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from the community based on their past behaviour, including behaviour outside of our spaces and behaviour towards people who are not in this community.

    In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

    Enforcement Process

    Every code of conduct violation report will be treated with seriousness and care. If a member's immediate safety and security is threatened, an individual admin may take any action that they deem appropriate, up to and including temporarily banning the offender from the community. In less urgent situations, at least two admins will discuss the offence and mutually arrive at a suitable response, which will be shared with the offender privately. Whatever the resolution that they decide upon, the decision of the admins involved in a violation case will be considered final.

    We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we've received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of our members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.

    Consequences

    Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the administrators may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the community and identification of the participant as a harasser to other members. At the discretion of the admins, or by request, one or more of the parties involved may request to discuss the violation and how to avoid similar situations in the future.

  • What are objects?

    Jeff Goodell: Would you explain, in simple terms, exactly what object-oriented software is?

    Steve Jobs: Objects are like people. They’re living, breathing things that have knowledge inside them about how to do things and have memory inside them so they can remember things. And rather than interacting with them at a very low level, you interact with them at a very high level of abstraction, like we’re doing right here.

    Here’s an example: If I’m your laundry object, you can give me your dirty clothes and send me a message that says, “Can you get my clothes laundered, please.” I happen to know where the best laundry place in San Francisco is. And I speak English, and I have dollars in my pockets. So I go out and hail a taxicab and tell the driver to take me to this place in San Francisco. I go get your clothes laundered, I jump back in the cab, I get back here. I give you your clean clothes and say, “Here are your clean clothes.”

    You have no idea how I did that. You have no knowledge of the laundry place. Maybe you speak French, and you can’t even hail a taxi. You can’t pay for one, you don’t have dollars in your pocket. Yet I knew how to do all of that. And you didn’t have to know any of it. All that complexity was hidden inside of me, and we were able to interact at a very high level of abstraction. That’s what objects are. They encapsulate complexity, and the interfaces to that complexity are high level.
