Testimonials

What people say
Una Kravits
UI Engineer at DigitalOcean
"Shift was a really exciting glance into the tech community of Split. I was really impressed with the venue, the people and conversations I had there, and feel really lucky that I had a chance to explore the city itself."
TOM PRESTON-WERNER
Co-Founder at GitHub
The Shift Conference for me was a great way to connect with the developers where the growth, energy, and future of technology is -- outside the North American bubble. There's a vibrant, engaging perspective and energy here that's not to be missed to get a complete picture of where the world's developers are going -- and what we will all be building together."
Ike DeLorezno
Senior Director of Product at Heroku
"Shift stands out as a rare gem in a world of cookie cutter tech conferences. Listening to insightful talks from the brightest minds of today’s tech scene while surrounded by the enchanting history of a town built nearly two millenia ago, you’d be hard pressed to find a more inspiring blend of past and future. Oh, and it’s the most fun you’ll have all year!"

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
