When presenting a tutorial or facilitating an online workshop, it must be ensured that brand usage guidelines are followed as well as not making sure that people don’t go overboard with promoting the presenter’s own brand/company. The Community Team handbook has set a precedent here that will also apply to Learn WordPress content, so much of the language on this page is copied/borrowed from there.
The Learn WordPress Code of Conduct outlines how to behave in an online workshop, and we expect presenters and facilitators to follow this guide in their presentations as well. This means that slides/imagery should be respectful, not include demeaning, discriminatory or harassing content and be family-friendly (i.e. no foul language, nudity or other inappropriate content).
Presenters and facilitators are allowed to include their company logo in their slides, on their shirts, or in a video background. When it comes to slides/video please only include the logo in an optional opening/closing informational slide and not throughout the presentation.
For the sake of clarity, “logo” here includes company social media handles and even the company name written out in plain text in lieu of a logo.
Presenters and facilitators are approved based on their knowledge and experience as individuals and not their company affiliation, and company promotion throughout a slide deck suggests that the opposite is true. An informational slide with the speaker’s company makes sense as information about who is speaking, but the rest of the slide deck should be dedicated to the content being presented.
All content must respect the GPL. In practice, this means any WordPress plugins or themes that are mentioned must be licensed under the GPL or a compatible licence. For more information, read this handy GPL Primer and go through the 100% GPL Vetting Checklist.
