DASA Influencer Responsibilities and Code of Conduct

DASA Influencer Responsibilities

During their participation on the DASA Influencer program, Influencer's General Responsibilities are defined as follows:

  1. Influencer actively represents DASA in the Region by participating in forums, events and DevOps and Agile community initiatives.
  2. Influencer participates in periodic calls with the DASA Community Engagement Manager to discuss their plans for the coming months and evaluate past activities.
  3. Influencer is expected to participate in the quarterly DASA Influencer (virtual) meetup (“DASA Quarterly Influencer Meeting (QIM)”) scheduled by DASA in which the community shares global updates, exchange ideas, experiences, and feedback. Due to time zone differences, there are two sessions: one at first-time in the morning and another before business day closes, both Central European Time. Influencer is invited to both sessions and can join whichever session suits him/her best or even both and commits no more than two unexcused absences in a year.

DASA Code of Conduct

The Influencer Code of Conduct drives the engagement of Influencer in the community. Influencer lives up to and adhere to the following Code of Conduct:


  • Be considerate. Other people will use our work, and we in turn will depend on the work of others.
  • Communicate wisely. When communicating, it’s important to recognize that your words have an effect on the people reading them. Do not include obscene content or act inappropriately and always communicate in a professional way.
  • Don’t sell your own services or your own organization. We want you to succeed in your own profession, but when you are representing DASA, we would like you to live up to DASA’s mantra of openness, collaboration, and neutrality. DASA Influencer needs to be respectful and communicate in a professional way
  • Balance your approach. Don’t overdo postings to social media, spamming or your engagement with the community. 
  • Be respectful. Not everyone may have the same opinion about DASA or the DevOps or Agile domain, but at all times treat the community with respect. 
  • Speak only for yourself when you are asked for your opinion while serving as Influencer, and make it clear that it is your personal opinion and not that of DASA.
  • Should not engage in talking negatively about competitive DevOps programs or organizations in the market. It is alright to compare and contrast differences, but do not engage in negative discussions.

Representing DASA 

  • Manage DASA information wisely. Keep confidential all DASA information that is not shared with the general public yet, but openly share, disseminate and distribute DASA thought leadership and content in the manner DASA expects it to be shared.
  • Represent DASA with pride. Act and speak professionally in a manner that reflects positively on DASA. Do not make any inaccurate or deceptive statements about DASA, its products or services. Respect DASA’s trademarks, and follow DASA’s trademark policy.
  • Use DASA tools smartly.  Make sure that when you are using DASA thought leadership or marketing materials that they are up to date and are the latest ones.
  • State clearly your connection to DASA. Properly represent your role as a DASA Influencer on LinkedIn and any other social media and do not present yourself as a DASA employee or DASA Partner.
  • Always be transparent. Do not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise disguise the URL of any Referral Page or use any link shortening service in any way that could cause a third party to be confused that the link goes to DASA web page.
  • Avoid a conflict of interests at all cost. As Influencer, you must remember what role you are playing, whether you are representing DASA or your own Company. If your own Company would like to have a talk with any DASA competitor, Influencer must first be open and share it with DASA, since this could harm the DASA community. The correct mindset of a DASA Influencer is the one who must balance their own Company goals with the ones of the whole DASA community.
