Playing Nice

Everyone wants to feel included and respected when they're collaborating and now there's a movement in crowd sourced creativity that's addressing this.

Django is an open-source web framework that we regularly use here at Mod. The creation and maintenance of Django is crowd-sourced from the Django community of volunteers and we were interested to note that a Django code of conduct has recently been released.

This is really relevant to today's online communities and collaborations because it recognises the diversity of crowds and demonstrates a set of values around inclusion and social behaviour that supports creativity.

PyCon, the conference for Python users and creators also has a code-of-conduct.

What's new about these codes of conduct is that they are themselves crowd-sourced using a wiki. This allows the community to continually develop and update the code of conduct, just as they would the software they collaboratively develop.
