Queercon 12 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.

I was the lead (only) software developer for the Queercon 12 electronic badge, which riffs on the Tomagotchi.

More details are available at my Bitbucket repository for the badge, and on Evan’s write-up, which is pretty comprehensive.
