Notes from the field: Policy-driven Governance

ENGLISH Intermediate IT

"Policy-driven Governance" is one of the core principles in ESLZ to provide guardrails and enable autonomy for the platform and application teams, regardless of their scale points. In this session we will contextualize what it means in reality, bust some myths around it, and most importantly, share some lessons learned from implementing it at massive scale.

We do not tolerate any behavior that is harassing or degrading to any individual, in any form. The Code of Conduct will be enforced.

Who does this Code of Conduct apply to?

All live stream organizers using the Global Azure brand and Global Azure speakers are responsible for knowing and abiding by these standards. Each speaker who wishes to submit through our Call for Presentations needs to read and accept the Code of Conduct. We encourage every organizer and attendee to assist in creating a welcoming and safe environment. Live stream organizers are required to inform and enforce the Code of Conduct if they accept community content to their stream.

Where can I get help?

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, report it. Please report any concerns, suspicious or disruptive activity or behavior directly to any of the live stream organizers, or directly to the Global Azure admins at All reports to the Global admin team will remain confidential.

Code of Conduct for local live streams

We expect local organizers to set up and enforce a Code of Conduct for all Global Azure live stream.
