NEW GUIDE: PyBadger Event Badge #AdafruitLearningSystem #PyBadge #Badge #BadgeLife #Adafruit @Adafruit

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System: the PyBadger Event Badge

You’re headed to the next big conference or event. They’ll likely provide a badge with your name on it, but what if you could have something better?

That’s where PyBadger and PyBadge (or PyGamer) come in! Use CircuitPython to easily create an interactive conference or event badge. You can display a “Hello My Name Is”-style badge that you can quickly add your name to, or customise it entirely. You can generate and display a custom QR code to direct people to your website. You can also display a “business card” with an image, such as your face or company logo, and a string of text, such as your email address.

CircuitPython’s own Blinka is headed to the next Circuit Playground conference and wants to have the coolest badge there. This guide will walk you through Blinka creating an interactive conference badge. Follow along and customise it to fit your needs!

PyBadger also gives you access to the other features on the board, such as the buttons, NeoPixels, light sensor, and accelerometer. You can easily add all kinds of features to your badge if you choose to.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
