Code of Conduct

Our community is a diverse community of people from many backgrounds, industries, countries, and cultures who choose to spend their time sharing their experiences with Microsoft .NET, DevOps and Python. Our meetups are a destination for education and thought leadership on best practices, product news, live events, and roadmap. Thanks for joining our DevOps Community. Learn more about at

As event and experience organizers, we seek to provide a respectful, friendly, professional experience for everyone, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, age, race, or religion. We do not tolerate any behavior that is degrading to any gender, race, sexual orientation, or disability, nor do we tolerate any behavior that would be deemed harassment or discrimination. Individuals are responsible for knowing and abiding by our standards and we encourage everyone to assist in creating a safe and welcoming environment. Please report any concerns, suspicious activity, or disruptive behavior to the Azure Tech Groups team so we can address issues immediately.

We aim to make the Spokane DevOps community a safe and welcoming environment for everyone to join and engage in. To help us achieve this aim we need to ask you not to post links to content not owned or controlled by IntelliTect, its suppliers, or vendors.

While we enable people to post attachments, scripts, and code as they can be helpful to solve problems in the community, users must take responsibility for running any code submitted to the site outside of official IntelliTect channels. Users must also properly check all attachments for any personal information to be removed before attaching.

This is a community for everyone! So if you have feedback or ideas, please submit your Idea to our discussion board.

If you have any questions about our guidelines, terms, or policies, reach out to the admin team.
