Just turned 34 today and my GF got me some new badges for my birthday so I thought I would update the thread with the new ones added 🙂
Since the original post I’ve added Dumpster Diving, PHP Elephant (thank you for making this one!), Android, Magic Blue Smoke Monster, QR Code, and Multi-meter.
PHP – Skill badge! – You learned PHP! PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Adafruit offers a fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.
This is the PHP elephant skill badge is for use with educators, classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey!
This beautiful badge is made in the USA.
The badge is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a life time, the backing is iron-on but the badge can also be sewn on.
One of most requested new badge for us to add was one for PHP. So we talked wth Vincent who designed the very cute PHP elephant and we now have permission to make these! The elePHPant created by Vincent PONTIER – www.elroubio.net Adafruit has permission directly from Vincent to make this wonderful badge! Read more about PHP here.
