Queercon 11 Electronic Badge

I am involved in the organization of Queercon, a non-profit dedicated to the intersection of the LGBT and information security and technology communities. Our main event is a set of annual programming at the DEF CON conference in Las Vegas.

Building on our success at Queercon 10 in producing electronic badges for attendees, we designed and distributed around 150 active electronic badges for Queercon XI (Defcon 22). I served as the programmer for the project.

More details are available at the official Queercon 11 badge page, our Bitbucket repository for the badge, or Evan’s comprehensive write-up.
