Fedora Open Badges (Badgers)

Filed under

So you might be aware of an ongoing project to create and deploy an open badge system to reward contributors for doing cool stuff across Fedora. (What are open badges? You can read about them in detail at openbadges.org; the short of it is that it’s an open infrastructure/standard for awarding people digital badges for achievements.)

Ralph and crew, which includes RIT co-ops, have been doing an awesome job creating the Fedora badges infrastructure; Jenn, the team design co-op, also did some awesome badge artwork. To get the full set of badges needed for Flock together in time, though, they needed some help. Since I’d just come back from a long leave of absence last week and had a pretty clear plate to crank stuff out, Ralph & Spot asked me for some help in completing the set of Flock badges.
